Abstract The study was conducted to determine the effect of pupal chemosterilization on the susceptibility of the resulting Anopheles albimanus and A. freeborni mosquitoes to Plasmodium vivax.

Anopheles albimanus and A. freeborni responded differently to pupal treatment and subsequent adult infection. Virtual… Expand
