These results highlight the increasing spread of insecticide resistance and the challenges that control programmes face to maintain the continued effectiveness of insecticide-based interventions.


Larvicidal activity of Zanthoxylum acanthopodium essential oil against the malaria mosquitoes, Anopheles anthropophagus and Anopheles sinensis

Victoria L. Rhodes, Matthew B. Thomas, Kristin Michel
Developmental & Comparative Immunology Volume 85, August 2018, Pages 125-133

The Toll pathway is a central regulator of antifungal immunity in insects.

Malaria Journal 2018 17:48, 25 January 2018

Around large water bodies such as reservoirs, the role of wind in the dynamics of Anopheles population, hence in malaria transmission, can be significant.

Immune Regulation of Plasmodium Is Anopheles Species Specific and Infection Intensity Dependent

Malaria parasite ookinetes must traverse the vector mosquito midgut epithelium to transform into sporozoite-producing oocysts.

Escaping blood-fed malaria mosquitoes minimize tactile detection without compromising on take-off speed

November 5, 2017 - 18:33 -- Open Access
Muijres FT, Chang SW, van Veen WG, Spitzen J, Biemans BT, Koehl MAR, Dudley R
J Exp Biol. 2017 Oct 15;220(Pt 20):3751-3762

To escape after taking a blood meal, a mosquito must exert forces sufficiently high to take off when carrying a load roughly equal to its body weight, while simultaneously avoiding detection by minimizing tactile signals exerted on the host's skin.

Modelling the impact of the long-term use of insecticide-treated bed nets on Anopheles mosquito biting time

September 19, 2017 - 15:13 -- Open Access
Claudia P. Ferreira, Silas P. Lyra, Franciane Azevedo, David Greenhalgh and Eduardo Massad
Malaria Journal 2017 16:373, 15 September 2017

By taking the evolutionary aspect into account, the model was able to show that the long-term use of ITNs, although representing an undisputed success in reducing malaria incidence and mortality in many affected areas, is not free of undesirable side effects.

Composition of Anopheles mosquitoes, their blood-meal hosts, and Plasmodium falciparum infection rates in three islands with disparate bed net coverage in Lake Victoria, Kenya

September 11, 2017 - 16:00 -- Open Access
Edwin Ogola, Jandouwe Villinger, Danspaid Mabuka, David Omondi, Benedict Orindi, James Mutunga, Vincent Owino and Daniel K Masiga
Malaria Journal 2017 16:360, 8 September 2017

These findings demonstrate high Plasmodium infection rates among the primary malaria vectors An. gambiae s.s. and An. arabiensis, as well as in An. coustani for the first time in the region, and that non-human blood-meal sources play an important role in their ecology.


Status of insecticide resistance in Anopheles mosquitoes in Ubon Ratchathani province, Northeastern Thailand

July 26, 2017 - 15:49 -- Open Access
Anchana Sumarnrote, Hans J. Overgaard, Nattapol Marasri, Bénédicte Fustec, Kanutcharee Thanispong, Theeraphap Chareonviriyaphap and Vincent Corbel
Malaria Journal 2017 16:299, 25 July 2017

This study shows that insecticide resistance is present in potential malaria vectors in northeastern Thailand.
