Mosquito-borne diseases with an economic impact create loss in commercial and labor outputs, particularly in countries with tropical and subtropical climates.

NOT Open Access | Malaria Parasites Co-opt Human Factor H to Prevent Complement-Mediated Lysis in the Mosquito Midgut

Human complement is a first line defense against infection in which circulating proteins initiate an enzyme cascade on the microbial surface that leads to phagocytosis and lysis.

Mathematical evaluation of community level impact of combining bed nets and indoor residual spraying upon malaria transmission in areas where the main vectors are Anopheles arabiensis mosquitoes

The insecticidal action of LLINs and IRS probably already approaches their absolute limit of potential impact upon this persistent vector so personal protection of nets should be enhanced by improving the physical integrity and durability.

Mosquito transmission of the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium chabaudi

This protocol was utilized for mosquito transmission of genetically distinct P. c. chabaudi isolates, highlighting differential parasite virulence within the mosquito vector and the spectrum of host  susceptibility to infection initiated via the natural route, mosquito bite.

Recent ecological research has revealed that environmental factors can strongly affect insect immunity and influence the outcome of host–parasite interactions.

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

November 15, 2012 - 07:49 -- Open Access
Author(s): 
Dugassa S, Lindh JM, Torr SJ, Oyieke F, Lindsay SW, Fillinger U
Reference:

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.
