Pyrethroid susceptibility of malaria vectors in four Districts of western Kenya
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:310 (4 July 2014)
A cluster based study of susceptibility of local vectors to pyrethroid insecticides revealed heterogenous distribution of resistance in Anopheles gambiae s.s. and An. arabiensis populations across clusters in 4 districts of western Kenya. Image: Distribution of deltamethrin resistance in Anopheles populations in clusters of western Kenya.
Evaluation of the influence of electric nets on the behaviour of oviposition site seeking Anopheles gambiae s.s
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:272 (19 June 2014)
Electric nets are a useful tool to analyse the oviposition behaviour of gravid malaria vectors, Anopheles gambiae s.l.. The study evaluates how the set-up affects the behaviour of the mosquito in order to interpret trapping results correctly. Image: Square of electric nets surrounding an artificial pond.

Molasses as a source of carbon dioxide for attracting the malaria mosquitoes Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles funestus
Malaria Journal 2014, 13:160 (27 April 2014)
An interesting study, which evaluated molasses as a potential substrate
for producing CO2 used as bait for malaria mosquitoes. It showed that this trap could provide a cost-effective alternative to collect malaria vectors in Africa.
