Distinct Transmission Cycles of Leishmania tropica in 2 Adjacent Foci, Northern Israel
Infection with Leishmania tropica is emerging because of encroachment of rock hyraxes and transmission by multiple vector species.
Frequent sugar feeding behavior by Aedes aegypti in Bamako, Mali makes them ideal candidates for control with attractive toxic sugar baits (ATSB)
Background Current tools and strategies are not sufficient to reliably address threats and outbreaks of arboviruses including Zika, dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever. Hence there is a growing…

Sand fly species P. sergenti seemed to better tolerate the drier habitats, which might explain the abundance of this species in the arid Judean Desert.
Decline Of Anopheles sergentii and Aedes caspius Populations Following Presentation Of Attractive Toxic (Spinosad) Sugar Bait Stations In An Oasis
ABSTRACT The effect of attractive sugar bait stations, including sucrose, juice of nectarine, slow-release substances, preservatives, red food-dye marker, and the oral insecticide spinosad, on…
The invasive shrub Prosopis juliflora enhances the malaria parasite transmission capacity of Anopheles mosquitoes: a habitat manipulation experiment
This study demonstrates how an invasive plant shrub promotes the malaria parasite transmission capacity of African malaria vector mosquitoes through the effect of flowering branches of highly attractive Prosopis juliflora.
