These findings emphasize the impact of environmental variables (e.g., sunlight exposure) on the residual efficacy of Bti and Bs biolarvicides in the field.

The impact of Anopheles gambiae egg storage for mass rearing and production success

From this study it was concluded that storing An. gambiae eggs at 4 °C and 48 ± 2% relative humidity (RH) for 5 days is the optimal condition and time that did not affect egg hatching rates, larval development and survivorship and emerged adult mosquito sex ratio.
