A New Classification System for the Actions of IRS Chemicals Traditionally Used For Malaria Control
Knowledge of how mosquitoes respond to insecticides is of paramount importance in understanding how an insecticide functions to prevent disease transmission. A suite of laboratory assays was used toExpand
Remote sensing as a landscape epidemiologic tool to identify villages at high risk for malaria transmission.
A landscape approach using remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) technologies was developed to discriminate between villages at high and low risk for malaria transmission, as definedExpand
Vector competence of three North American strains of Aedes albopictus for West Nile virus.
To evaluate the potential for North American (NA) Aedes albopictus to transmit West Nile virus (WN), mosquito strains derived from 3 NA sources (Frederick County, Maryland, FRED strain; Cheverly, MD,Expand
DDT, global strategies, and a malaria control crisis in South America.
Malaria is reemerging in endemic-disease countries of South America. We examined the rate of real growth in annual parasite indexes (API) by adjusting APIs for all years to the annual bloodExpand
Identification of Plasmodium vivax sporozoites in mosquitoes using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
A sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for identifying Plasmodium vivax sporozoites in mosquitoes is described. Monoclonal antibodies produced against Thailand P. vivax sporozoites wereExpand
Insecticide resistance issues in vector-borne disease control.
Vector-borne diseases are an increasing cause of death and suffering worldwide. Efforts to control these diseases have been focused on the use of chemical pesticides, but arthropod resistanceExpand
Identification of malaria-infected mosquitoes by a two-site enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
A micro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for identifying malaria sporozoites in mosquitoes is described. Using an extract of dried infected mosquitoes as antigen, a two-site ELISA wasExpand
Route of invasion and histopathology of Metarhizium anisopliae in Culex quinquefasciatus.
Abstract The fungus Metarhizium anisopliae , known to be a pathogen of terrestrial insects, has been shown to be a potentially successful biocontrol agent of the Culicidae. Two methods of inoculationExpand
A comparison study of house entering and exiting behavior of Anopheles vestitipennis (Diptera: Culicidae) using experimental huts sprayed with DDT or deltamethrin in the southern district of Toledo,
An investigation of the house entering and exiting behavior of Anopheles vestitipennis Dyar and Knab was undertaken in the Toledo District of Belize, Central America, between March and December ofExpand
Characterization of Anopheles darlingi (Diptera: Culicidae) larval habitats in Belize, Central America.
Surveys for larvae of Anopheles darlingi Root were conducted in April, May, and August 1994 in riverine habitats of central Belize (Cayo and Belize districts). An. darlingi was present during bothExpand
