Re-used larval-rearing water has no impact on egg hatching, development time or mortality of the immature stages of An. arabiensis.
An equation has been derived to allow accurate quantification of dried Anopheles arabiensis eggs based on weight, enabling more accurate quantification of eggs for consistent larval rearing density to be achieved.
This study confirms that insecticide decay and developing levels of resistance have a negative contribution to reduced efficacy of ITN and IRS in western Kenya.
These data demonstrate the effectiveness of three insecticidal compounds administered systemically to cattle for controlling the cattle-feeding mosquito An. arabiensis. Eprinomectin and fipronil provided the longest-lasting control.
The commercial products and laboratory-produced repellents can be utilized by individuals to avoid contact with An. arabiensis in Ethiopia.
These observations suggest key roles played by landscape classes and rainfall in malaria vector densities, infection rates and malaria transmission that could be more pronounced in villages situated in wooded savanna and bare soils.
This is the first demonstration of correspondent phenotypic and genetic structuring in An. arabiensis.
Sterile An. arabiensis males released into the field were able to find and participate in existing swarms, and possibly even initiate swarms.
This study reports for the first time the presence of An. arabiensis in Antula, a suburb of Bissau city, the capital of Guinea Bissau, where high levels of hybridization between Anopheles coluzzii and An. gambiae have been reported.
This study evaluated the efficacy of the silicone-based surface film, Aquatain® Mosquito Formulation (AMF), for the control of the Afrotropical malaria vectors, Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto and Anopheles arabiensis in laboratory dose–response assays and standardized field tests.
