Oviposition Attractants and Repellents of Mosquitoes: Oviposition Responses of Culex Mosquitoes to Organic Infusions
The oviposition responses of Culex tarsalis and C. pipiens quinquefasciatus females to 2 organic infusions have been studied in the laboratory. A 1% lab chow infusion was significantly repellent toExpand
Ecology: A Prerequisite for Malaria Elimination and Eradication
Gerry Killeen and colleagues argue that malaria eradication efforts will not be successful until a better understanding of the ecology and evolution of the mosquito vectors is gained.

Bioactive compounds contained in the seed kernel and other parts of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica A. Juss) have been found to show insecticidal activities and other effects in many species ofExpand
Identification of oviposition attractants for Culex quinquefasciatus from fermented Bermuda grass infusions.
Compounds which attract and stimulate oviposition by gravid Culex quinquefasciatus were isolated and identified from a fermented Bermuda grass infusion. The neutral portion of the ether extract ofExpand
Control of Chironomid Midges in Recreational Lakes
Several commonly available and experimental insecticides were evaluated for control of chironomid midge larvae, Chironomus spp., Proclaideus spp., and Tanytarsus spp. in 2 recreational lakes. InExpand
Repellency of essential oils extracted from plants in Thailand against four mosquito vectors (Diptera: Culicidae) and oviposition deterrent effects against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae).
In this study we evaluated and reported repellent effects of essential oils from Thai plants against 4 mosquito vectors: Aedes aegypti, Ae. albopictus, Anopheles. dirus and Culex quinquefasciatusExpand

Botanical insecticides are relatively safe and degradable, and are readily available sources of biopesticides. The most prominent phytochemical pesticides in recent years are those derived from neemExpand
Impacts of mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) predation on plankton communities
An investigation of the effects of mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) predation was conducted in 12 experimental ponds in southern California over a period of 10 months.Gambusia essentiallyExpand
Ovipositional Repellency of Fatty Acids and Their Derivatives Against Culex and Aedes Mosquitoes
Lower aliphatic carboxylic acids are known to induce negative ovipositional responses in various species of mosquitoes. Straight-chain higher fatty acids from C5 to C13 and some of their methyl andExpand
Oviposition responses of Culex tarsalis and Culex quinquefasciatus to aged Bermuda grass infusions.
Fermented infusions of organic matter are commonly used as baits in traps for gravid female mosquitoes. However, infusions are dynamic, and their effects on mosquito oviposition as their chemical andExpand
