We studied the human biting behaviour of the malaria vector Anopheles funestus Giles and the potential malaria vector Anopheles quadriannulatus Theobald in Luangwa valley, south-east Zambia.
There are relatively few data on mixed infection rates in mosquitoes from Africa.
Laboratory studies with susceptible and resistant strains of An. culicifacies and An. stephensi, coupled with limited field studies with multiple insecticide-resistant An. culicifacies have shown that chlorfenapyr can be a suitable insecticide for malaria vector control, in multiple insecticide resistant mosquitoes especially in areas with pyrethroid resistant mosquitoes.
Rodent malaria parasites are commonly used for investigations into the immunology of pre-erythrocytic stage malaria infection, as sporozoites can be easily produced in the laboratory.
