The directional selection for insecticide resistance due to indiscriminate use of insecticides in public health and agricultural system favors an increase in the frequency of insecticide-resistant alleles in the natural populations. Similarly, removal of selection pressure generally leads to decay in resistance. Past investigations on the emergence of insecticide resistance in mosquitoes mostly relied on field survey of resistance in vector populations that typically had a complex history of… Expand

Development of Resistance to Pyrethroid in Culex pipiens pallens Population under Different Insecticide Selection Pressures
This study exposed a field-collected population of Culex pipiens pallens to different insecticides selection intensities to dynamically monitor the development of resistance, and revealed that the level of pyrethroid resistance was proportional to the insecticide selection pressure. Expand
Impact of agriculture on the selection of insecticide resistance in the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae: a multigenerational study in controlled conditions
It is demonstrated that the recurrent exposure of larvae to agricultural pollutants can select for resistance mechanisms to vector control insecticides at the adult stage, and the need for integrated resistance management strategies taking into account agriculture activities is emphasized. Expand
Costly Inheritance and the Persistence of Insecticide Resistance in Aedes aegypti Populations
Application to field data from Brazil indicates that reversal can take, in some cases, decades even if fitness costs are not small, and shows that density dependent regulation plays an important role in the dynamics, slowing down the reversal process. Expand
Relationship between Knockdown Resistance, Metabolic Detoxification and Organismal Resistance to Pyrethroids in Anopheles sinensis
The results demonstrate the importance of metabolic detoxification in pyrethroid resistance in An. Expand
Costs and benefits of multiple resistance to insecticides for Culex quinquefasciatus mosquitoes
Two insecticides combined in an additive, synergistic and antagonistic manner depending on a mosquito's resistance status, but were not predictable based on the presence/absence of either, or both mutations. Expand
Characterisation of Anopheles strains used for laboratory screening of new vector control products
The identification of multiple mechanisms underpinning insecticide resistance highlights the importance of screening new compounds against a range of characterized mosquito strains to identify potential resistance liabilities. Expand

Emerging Pyrethroid Resistance among Anopheles arabiensis in Kenya
Abstract. Vector control programs, particularly in the form of insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs), are essential for achieving malaria elimination goals. Recent reports of increasing knockdownExpand
Impact of environment on mosquito response to pyrethroid insecticides: facts, evidences and prospects.
Current knowledge on pyrethroid resistance mechanisms in mosquitoes is updated and available data on the impact of the environment on mosquito response to pyrethroids, including key environmental factors, such as the presence of urban or agricultural pollutants and biotic interactions between mosquitoes and their microbiome are discussed, and research perspectives to fill in knowledge gaps are suggested.
