Response of Culex quinquefasciatus to deltamethrin in Lahore district

In the present study, both male and females of Culex quinquefasciatus were sampled from five different localities of Lahore District of Punjab, Pakistan. (that is, Jaman, Mohlanwal, Noorpur Bhatta A1, Yohanaabad–2 and GCU Lahore). Bioassays against 5% deltamethrin were performed to evaluate the level of resistance in Culex quinquefasciatus against deltamethrin. For the adult bioassays...

Gonotrophic age structure of mosquitoes in the Culex pipiens complex (Diptera: Culicidae) and possible influences on host meal selection

The age structure and mortality rates of Culex pipiens populations are critical to measures of vector capacity since each bloodmeal affords a chance of the female becoming infected. We examine the parous rate (proportion of females that had laid at least one egg boat) at two study sites to determine life-history parameters. Mosquitoes were collected using CO2-baited CDC miniature light...
