Mosquito Control Based on Pesticides and Endosymbiotic Bacterium Wolbachia
TLDR
This paper incorporates consideration of releasing infected sterile mosquitoes and spraying pesticides to aim to reduce wild mosquito populations based on the population replacement model, and presents the estimations for the number of wild mosquitoes or infection density in a normal environment.

Using Wolbachia to Eliminate Dengue: Will the Virus Fight Back?
TLDR
While there are hurdles to dengue viruses developing resistance to Wolbachia, it is suggested that long-term surveillance for resistant viruses should be an integral component of Wolbachian-introgression biocontrol programs. Expand
Control Strategy for Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus, 1762) Population
TLDR
This chapter discusses population control strategies, in different scenarios and carried out by different researchers, mainly in Brazil, to understand the adaptive capacity of this vector and propose new strategies and engagement of population in proactive actions that allow the population control of this vectors, especially in periods of greater proliferation.

Prophylactic strategies to control chikungunya virus infection
TLDR
This review gives a brief summary on CHikungunya virus epidemiology, spread, infection and diagnosis, and deals with the strategies against emerging diseases, drug development and the possibilities of testing antivirals against CHIKV in vitro and in vivo. Expand
Performance of Dried Blood Spots Compared with Serum Samples for Measuring Dengue Seroprevalence in a Cohort of Children in Cebu, Philippines
TLDR
Considering the advantages in terms of sample collection, shipment, and storage, DBS sampling may be appropriate for dengue population serosurveys. Expand
Adequacy and sufficiency evaluation of existing EFSA guidelines for the molecular characterisation, environmental risk assessment and post‐market environmental monitoring of genetically modified insects containing engineered gene drives
TLDR
In this Scientific Opinion, the Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) concludes that EFSA's guidelines are adequate, but insufficient for the molecular characterisation, environmental risk assessment and post‐market environmental monitoring of GDMIs. Expand
