Growth rates of black soldier fly larvae fed on fresh human faeces and their implication for improving sanitation
To determine the capacity of black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) (Hermetia illucens) to convert fresh human faeces into larval biomass under different feeding regimes, and to determine how effective BSFLExpand
Field Evaluation of Traditionally Used Plant-Based Insect Repellents and Fumigants Against the Malaria Vector Anopheles darlingi in Riberalta, Bolivian Amazon
Abstract Inexpensive insect repellents may be needed to supplement the use of impregnated bed-nets in the Amazon region, where the primary malaria vector, Anopheles darlingi (Root), is exophilic andExpand
Semiochemicals of the common bed bug, Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), and their potential for use in monitoring and control.
The recent resurgence of the common bed bug, Cimex lectularius L., has driven an increase in research into the biology and behaviour of this pest. Current control is reliant on the application ofExpand
Are mosquitoes diverted from repellent‐using individuals to non‐users? Results of a field study in Bolivia
Outside sub‐Saharan Africa, Anopheline mosquito exophagic and/or crepuscular behaviour patterns imply that insecticide‐treated nets may provide incomplete protection from malaria‐infective mosquitoExpand
Identification of Neryl Formate as the Airborne Aggregation Pheromone for the American House Dust Mite and the European House Dust Mite (Acari: Epidermoptidae)
ABSTRACT The American house dust mite, Dermatophagoides farinae Hughes, and European house dust mite, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus Trouessart, are major pests of medical importance throughout theExpand
Olfactory Responses of Medically and Economically Important Mites (Acari: Epidermoptidae and Acaridae) to Volatile Chemicals
Abstract Dermatophagoides farinae Hughes (Acari: Epidermoptidae), the American house dust mite, and Tyrophagus putrescentiae (Schrank) (Acari: Acaridae), the mold mite, are medically and economicallyExpand
Oviposition pheromones in insect vectors.
Oviposition aggregation pheromones occur in a range of insect groups including Diptera, where they mediate oviposition in four different families of disease vectors. In this paper, Philip McCall andExpand
Border malaria in China: knowledge and use of personal protection by minority populations and implications for malaria control: a questionnaire-based survey
BackgroundMalaria control in remote, forested areas of the Mekong region relies on personal protection from mosquito bites. Uptake of these methods may be limited by knowledge of the link betweenExpand

Abstract. In the Brazilian village of BoqueiraTo do Renato Parente, Ceará State, where visceral leishmaniasis is endemic, significant variation in the abundance of phlebotomine sandflies betweenExpand
Smoke and malaria: are interventions to reduce exposure to indoor air pollution likely to increase exposure to mosquitoes?
Indoor air pollution from the domestic use of biomass fuels by poor households in developing countries is known to be harmful to health, and efforts are being made to address this problem by changesExpand
