This study has demonstrated occurrence of An. funestus swarms for the first time in Tanzania.
This is the first time that An. funestus swarms have been molecularly identified to species level. Anopheles funestus swarms appear to be species-specific with no evidence of clade-type differentiation within these swarms.
These data show that high levels of deltamethrin resistance in the main malaria vector species, conferred by enzymatic detoxification, are present in the DRC.
A hydrolysis probe analysis (TaqMan assay) was used to study clade types in Anopheles funestus sensu stricto Giles, a major malaria vector in sub-Saharan Africa, with specimens collected from Muheza in Tanga, northeastern Tanzania.
Variation in the abundance of indoor-resting Anopheles in rural houses of western Kenya varies with clearly identifiable factors.
Insecticide resistance in mosquito populations threatens recent successes in malaria prevention.
Resistance to pyrethroids, the sole insecticide class recommended for treating bed nets, threatens the control of major malaria vectors, including Anopheles funestus.
The study reports multiple insecticide resistance in An. funestus from Akaka Remo.
This study presents the first direct experimental evidence of miRNAs in An. funestus and the first profiling study of miRNA associated with the maturation in this mosquito.
This study collected data on anopheline populations in CAR, behaviour of vectors and transmission levels.
