Larvicidal effects of various essential oils against Aedes, Anopheles, and Culex larvae (Diptera, Culicidae)
TLDR
The oils of 41 plants were evaluated for their effects against third-instar larvae of Aedes aegypti, Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus and induced 100% mortality after 24 h, or even after shorter periods. Expand
Repellency effect of forty-one essential oils against Aedes, Anopheles, and Culex mosquitoes
TLDR
Five most effective oils were evaluated against the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus), the malaria vector, Anopheles stephensi (Liston), and the filariasis and encephalitis vector, Culex quinquefasciatus (Say) (Diptera: Culicidae) using the skin of human volunteers to find out the protection time and repellency.

The piroplasms: life cycle and sexual stages.
TLDR
Comparative biological and morphological studies show that the economically important piroplasms comprise three groups: (1) Babesia species sensu strictu ; (2) Bubesia equi , B. microti ; and (3) Theileria species. Expand
Declining malaria, rising of dengue and Zika virus: insights for mosquito vector control
TLDR
The emerging scenario highlights that the effective and eco-friendly control of mosquito vectors, with special reference to highly invasive species such as Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, is crucial. Expand
First occurrence of Culicoides obsoletus-transmitted bluetongue virus epidemic in central Europe
TLDR
The finding strongly supports that the BTD-epidemic, which reached in the meantime wide regions of North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany and of the neighbouring countries with several hundreds of affected farms, is initiated by virus transmission during the blood meal of midges of the C. obsoletus complex.

Encyclopedia of Parasitology
TLDR
The third edition of this, one of Springer's renowned and authoritative Major Reference Works, contributes to these goals in several ways by increasing the number of entries and improving the content. Expand
Persistency of larvicidal effects of plant oil extracts under different storage conditions
TLDR
The persistency of larvicidal effects of 13 oils was examined by storage of 50-ppm solutions under different conditions for 1 month after the preparation of the solutions, finding that the fresh preparations were always the best. Expand
Redescription of Babesia equi Laveran, 1901 as Theileria equi Mehlhorn, Schein 1998
