IRS and LLIN: Integration of methods and insecticide mode of actions for control of African malaria vector mosquitoes

Objectives

To study the behavior of African mosquito vectors exposed to insecticides used in IRS and ITNs in order to determine the mode of action of insecticides, to determine the efficacy of IRS and LLINs related to modes of action, and to quantify changes in mosquito behavior associated with insecticide resistance.
