Anopheles gambiae s.s. showed an increasing tendency to feed on cattle.


Gravid Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto avoid ovipositing in Bermuda grass hay infusion and it’s volatiles in two choice egg-count bioassays

Anopheles gambiae s.s. prefers to lay eggs in tap water rather than Bermuda grass hay infusion.

Suboptimal larval habitats modulate oviposition of the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles gambiae s.s.

Taken together, these findings validate the hypothesis in question and suggest that suboptimal environments for An. gambiae larval development results in the release of DMDS, DMTS and sulcatone that impact the response valence of gravid females to directly modulate the chemical ecology of oviposition site selection.

Cedrol is the first compound confirmed as an oviposition attractant for gravid An. gambiae s.l.. This finding paves the way for developing new ‘attract and kill strategies’ for malaria vector control.


Activity of Cinnamomum osmophloeum leaf essential oil against Anopheles gambiae s.s

In this study, the larvicidal activity and chemical composition of the Cinnamomum osmophloeum leaf essential oils were investigated.

Not Open Access | No evidence for positive selection at two potential targets for malaria transmission-blocking vaccines in Anopheles gambiae s.s

These results provide insight into the patterns of genetic diversity of saglin and laminin, and we discuss these findings in relation to the potential development of these molecules as vaccine targets.

Electric nets and sticky materials for analysing oviposition behaviour of gravid malaria vectors

November 15, 2012 - 07:49 -- Open Access

A square of four e-nets with yellow sticky boards as a collection device can be used for quantifying the numbers of mosquitoes approaching a small oviposition site. Shiny sticky surfaces attract gravid females possibly because they are visually mistaken as aquatic habitats.
