Sahu SS, Gunasekaran K, Jambulingam P.
Indian J Med Res. 2014 Aug;140(2):296-301.

In this context, the present study highlights the environmental control of breeding of Anopheles fluviatilis, the primary malaria vector, through water management in a natural stream in Koraput district, Odisha, India.

These data suggest that regional vector control measures would be equally effective in both northern and southern localities sampled, but also that insecticide resistant genes may spread rapidly within this region.

Our work, therefore, opens new avenues to the development of both novel small molecule anti-clotting agents and anti-malarials.

Using infective mosquitoes to challenge monkeys with Plasmodium knowlesi in malaria vaccine studies

June 10, 2014 - 15:37 -- Open Access
Murphy JR, Weiss WR, Chen J, et al.
Malaria Journal 2014, 13 :215 (3 June 2014)

Anopheles dirus, An. crascens and a cross between these two species all were excellent vectors for P. knowlesi. High donor monkey parasitaemia was associated with poor mosquito survival.

Medical and Veterinary Entomology Volume 28, Issue 2, pages 169–178, June 2014

Mosquitoes of the Anopheles maculipennis Meigen (Diptera: Culicidae) group are of public health concern: five of the 11 morphologically indistinct species have been historically considered as vectors of malaria in Europe.

Transmission blocking activity of Azadirachta indica and Guiera senegalensis extracts on the sporogonic development of Plasmodium falciparum field isolates in Anopheles coluzzii mosquitoes

May 6, 2014 - 17:15 -- Open Access
Yerbanga RS, Lucantoni L, Habluetzel A, et al.
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7 :185 (15 April 2014)

In this study, we assessed the antiplasmodial effects of 5 extracts obtained from the neem tree Azadirachta indica and Guiera senegalensis against the early vector stages of Plasmodium falciparum, using field isolates.

CYP6 P450 Enzymes and ACE-1 Duplication Produce Extreme and Multiple Insecticide Resistance in the Malaria Mosquito Anopheles gambiae

Malaria control relies heavily on pyrethroid insecticides, to which susceptibility is declining in Anopheles mosquitoes.

Survival of the Immature Stages of the Malaria Vectors Anopheles pseudopunctipennis and Anopheles argyritarsis (Diptera: Culicidae) in Northwestern Argentina

Florida Entomologist 97(1):191-202. 2014

We collected 1,643 larvae of which 1,404 reached adulthood. Of these 1,119 were An. pseudopunctipennis, and 285 were An. argyritarsis. Both An. pseudopunctipennis and An. argyritarsis were abundant in autumn (55.3% and 66.7%, respectively).

Efficacy and non-target impact of spinosad, Bti and temephos larvicides for control of Anopheles spp. in an endemic malaria region of southern Mexico

February 25, 2014 - 17:26 -- Open Access
Marina CF, Bond J, Muñoz J, Valle J, Novelo-Gutiérrez R, Williams T
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7 :55 (30 January 2014)

These larvicides resulted in 15 and 5 weeks of elimination of Culex spp., respectively, or 20 and 4 weeks of continuous elimination of U. lowii, respectively. Bti treatment provided little consistent control.
