Although the risk of morbidity from the use of the mosquito coil was low, the coil yielded limited protection as a mosquito avoidance method.

Background

In Ethiopia, despite the increasing availability of long-lasting insecticide treated nets (LLINs), the LLINs use among LLINs owning households has not been satisfactory. Identifying the circumstances and the associated factors is necessary to achieve the Millennium Development Goal targets. We aimed to assess barriers related with LLIN use at the household level.

MalariaWorldJennifer Stevenson and colleagues' recent discovery of a previously unreported malaria-transmitting mosquito in Kisii district in the western highlands of Kenya has brought a new twist to entomological surveillance strategies.4 Analysis has indicated that the insect's DNA differs from that of previously documented malaria-transmitting mosquitoes in Africa.

MalariaWorldHere, we present a comparative analysis of the antimicrobial responses of two distantly related disease vectors: Aedes aegypti and Anopheles gambiae. Survival studies showed that Ae. aegypti are more proficient in surviving a bacterial infection than An. gambiae, and this correlates with Ae. aegypti’s superior ability to kill bacteria in their hemocoels.
