We determined whether aerosol applications of resmethrin, delivered from the road, suppress the reproductive activity of Culex pipiens pipiens and Cx. restuans mosquitoes in suburban sites located near Boston. Oviposition implies a prior blood-feeding event and hence a potential West Nile virus (WNV) transmission-related event. Droplet size, rate of delivery and meteorological conditions were monitored. The target populations proved to be fully susceptible to the insecticide that was used. The… Expand

TLDR
These experiments demonstrate that model systems provide an economical framework for testing different mosquito and mosquito-borne pathogen control strategies and can ultimately inform field interventions and enable better allocation of intervention resources. Expand
Spatio-temporal impacts of aerial adulticide applications on populations of West Nile virus vector mosquitoes
BACKGROUND Aerial applications of insecticides that target adult mosquitoes are widely used to reduce transmission of West Nile virus to humans during periods of epidemic risk. However, estimates ofExpand

Evaluation of a novel West Nile virus transmission control strategy that targets Culex tarsalis with endectocide-containing blood meals
TLDR
Deployment of ivermectin-treated bird feed as a systemic endectocide for birds to target blood feeding Culex tarsalis, the primary West Nile virus (WNV) bridge vector in the western United States, is developed and preliminary tests on the effects of deploying this feed in the field are conducted.

Retention and efficacy of ultra-low volume pesticide applications on Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
It was found that droplet retention and mortality were reduced with the larger droplet sizes, and ULV applications with ultra-fine sprays resulted in maximum target efficacy under laboratory conditions, at minimum cost, and with the minimum amount of chemical adulticides. Expand
Ultra‐low‐volume space sprays in mosquito control: a critical review
  • J. A. Bonds
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Medical and veterinary entomology
  • 2012
TLDR
Space spray application now employs ultra‐low‐volume technology for the control of adult mosquitoes, but the use of space sprays often raises social and environmental concerns by the general public that is served. Expand
Reducing West Nile Virus Risk Through Vector Management
TLDR
It is found that, despite a proliferation of research investigating larval and adult mosquito control effectiveness, few of these studies actually measure epidemiological outcomes or the entomological surrogates of WNV risk. Expand

The Impact of Adulticide Applications on Mosquito Density in Chicago, 2005
TLDR
Overall, there was significant decrease in mosquito density at the trap sites treated in all 4 wk, suggesting that sustained sequential treatments suppressed mosquito density, and maximum likelihood estimates (MLE) of infection rate estimates varied independently of adulticide treatments, suggest that the adulticides had no direct effect on MLE.

West Nile Virus Risk Assessment and the Bridge Vector Paradigm
TLDR
It is suggested that 2 species not previously considered important in transmitting WNV to humans may be responsible for up to 80% of human WNV infections in this region and control efforts should be focused on these species which may reduce effects on nontarget wetland organisms. Expand
Apparent influence of the stage of blood meal digestion on the efficacy of ground applied ULV aerosols for the control of urban Culex mosquitoes. I. Field evidence.
TLDR
The data indicate that a single treatment with ULV may be inadequate for the effective control of vector mosquitoes and that this oscillation arises from changes in susceptibility following blood feeding and/or behavioral factors. Expand
