This case study focuses on the developed methodology while also highlighting the significant research gaps which must be filled to guide countries on the most effective strategy for IRS targeting in the context of universal LLIN coverage and evolving insecticide resistance.

Analyses of microsatellite loci from seven (2006) and nine settlements (2012–2014) in the Iquitos area detected two distinctive populations with little overlap, although it is unclear whether this population replacement event is associated with LLIN distribution or climate.

Do holes in long-lasting insecticidal nets compromise their efficacy against pyrethroid resistant Anopheles gambiae and Culex quinquefasciatus? Results from a release–recapture study in experimental huts

August 31, 2015 - 16:01 -- Open Access

Sanjiarizaha Randriamaherijaona, Olivier J T Briët, Sébastien Boyer, Aziz Bouraima, Raphael N’Guessan, Christophe Rogier, Vincent Corbel

Even though personal protection by LLINs against feeding mosquitoes is strongly reduced by holes, the insecticidal effect of LLINs is independent of the holed surface area, but strongly dependent on insecticide resistance.

Modified mosquito landing boxes dispensing transfluthrin provide effective protection against Anopheles arabiensis mosquitoes under simulated outdoor conditions in a semi-field system

Modified MLBs can be used as efficient and long-lasting dispensers of volatile spatial repellents such as transfluthrin, thereby providing high levels of protection against outdoor-biting mosquitoes in the peri-domestic space.

At 27 − 30 months, LLINs already had a large total hole surface area that was equivalent to the oldest nets observed.

These results confirm that the presence of cattle at the household level can significantly alter the local species composition, feeding and resting behaviour of malaria vectors.

Are topical insect repellents effective against malaria in endemic populations? A systematic review and meta-analysis

Malaria Journal 2014, 13:446 (21 November 2014)

Although topical repellents can provide individual protection against mosquitoes, the results of this meta-analysis indicate that topical repellents are unlikely to provide effective protection against malaria.
