The risk of mosquito-borne diseases has put world under threat for long years. Many dependant variables, particularly physical and biological parameters of the breeding site directly influence the species richness and abundance patterns of mosquito species. The present study is an attempt to map the mosquito vector distribution in Sonitpur district of Assam, an endemic district in terms of mosquito borne diseases. Mosquito vectors are collected using CDC light traps from 21 different habitats al...

The present study pertains to the exploitation of biowaste generated through Banana (Musa acuminate L.) peels for the synthesis of green silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and their bioactivity was evaluated for managing the dengue vector, Aedes aegypti. UV-VIS specrtophotometery was used for confirming AgNPs synthesis and a peak was observed at 426 nm. Characterization of AgNPs was done using Scanning electron microscopy which depicted spherical shape of AgNPs while Transmission electron micrographs ...

Vector control is one of the major aspects for prevention and control of Japanese encephalitis (JE). Information on population dynamics and impact of environmental factors on it are important for formulation of vector control measures. Present study was designed to study species abundance, population dynamics and impact of environmental factors on JE vectors in northern part of West Bengal. Immature and mature stages were collected on monthly basis and identified morphologically. Per dip density...

Plants extracts have been used as alternative sources of mosquito control since the ancient time prior to the development of synthetic pesticides due to the presence of repellent properties against insects. Anopheles gambiae mosquito is the vectors of Malaria disease in Tropical and Subtropical Africa, and the present practice of using synthetic pesticides to control the vector have results in the development of resistance by the mosquitoes and the pesticides causes environmental pollution and d...

Mosquitoes continue to transmit malaria despite the use of several methods of control such as treated bed nets, aerosols and repellent creams. Mosquito biting cause stress and medical problems to school going children. An experimental ecological study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of two months old potted Artemisia annua plants for mosquito repellence in boarding schools’ dormitories of Mwea Rice Irrigation Scheme, Kenya. Two months old potted live A.annua plants were hung next to...

Mosquitoes have stood for centuries as one of the most dangerous insects in the world. Although not all mosquitoes indeed cause disease, and not all infections are life-threatening, those that are harmful require serious concern. Many countries face the initial outbreak of mosquito-borne diseases, and before it’s too late, it is wise to be precautious and embrace the best mosquito control measures. Pesticides are chemical or biological substances used to kill or repel targeted organisms. All pes...
Wolbachia is a group of Rickettsia-like, intracellular, maternally inherited bacterial endosymbionts that infect a diverse range of arthropods and cause reproductive changes in their hosts. Mesocyclops thermocyclopoides is a species of copepod crustacean that naturally infected with Wolbachia. While its role in some hosts has been studied extensively, its incidence among copepod species is still largely unknown. Here, we present the first report on the study of the integration between copepods a...
Infections of DF was appeared in an epidemic state in different geographical part of the country including our zone, and lately CHIKV (2018) was introduced to Eritrea through the border we shared with Sudan and getting distributed to the western part mainly Gash Barka and Anseba zones. Apart from the attempts to control the spread of these diseases, there has not been any study done in respect to the Ae. mosquito composition, distribution or even their habitats. A survey was conducted in Keren, ...
Diseases caused by Aedes mosquitoes mainly DF, CHIKN and yellow fever are emerging and reemerging globally. Dengue fever and CHIKN are well established in Eritrea that endemic of dengue fever were repeatedly seen. In addition to this CHIKN has become a public health problem specially at the western part. The strategies which were conducted against dengue fever were not resulted in to substantial reduction over the past years. As a result the ZMCP has introduced a community based strategy at kere...
Mosquito-borne diseases (MBDs) are a serious public health problem worldwide. The study was carried out from March 2015 to February 2016 to determine the fauna and distribution of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in ten sentinel sites in the River Nile State, Sudan. Mosquitoes were collected as adults from resting places and larvae from aquatic habitats. The location of mosquito collection was marked using a global positioning system (GPS). A total of 4,803 specimens were collected in the area. T...
