Abstract:Traditional mosquito control strategies rely heavily on the use of chemical
insecticides. However, concerns about the efficiency of traditional control methods,
environmental impact and emerging pesticide resistance have highlighted the necessity
for developing innovative tools for mosquito control. Some novel strategies,
including release of insects carrying a dominant lethal gene (RIDL®), rely
on the sustained release of modified male mosquitoes and therefore benefit from a
thorough understanding of the biol… Show more
