Measuring, manipulating and exploiting behaviours of adult mosquitoes to optimize malaria vector control impact

Abstract:

Residual malaria transmission can persist despite high coverage with effective long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) and/or indoor residual spraying (IRS), because many vector mosquitoes evade them by feeding upon animals, feeding outdoors, resting outdoors, or rapidly exiting from houses after entering them. However, many of these behaviours that render vectors resilient to control with IRS and LLINs also make them vulnerable to some emerging new alternative interventions. Furthermore, vect...
