Very low mortality was observed in the water control. M. anisopliae in Suneem formulation could be developed for a spray technique, before being introduced in vector control.
To evaluate the larvicide and biting deterrency activity of bud of Polianthes tuberosa (P. tuberosa) against Culex quinquefasciatus (Cx. quinquefasciatus) and Anopheles stephensi (An. stephensi).
Here we examine this predator's preference profile in greater detail than has been achieved before. Lures (dead prey mounted in life-like posture) were made from two mosquitoes (Anopheles gambiae and Culex quinquefasciatus) and a non-biting midge (Clinotanypus claripennis).
This study explored the effect of co-habitation between An. gambiae s.s. and Cx. quinquefasciatus on different life history traits of both species under different densities and constant food supply in the habitats of the same size under semi-natural conditions.
Interesting study that highlights the importance of developing effective control tools that can be utilized in resistance management programmes. Although the results of the paper do not provide overwhelming support for the deltamethrin and piperonyl butoxide combination bednet, it is an important negative result.
