Molecular entomology and prospects for malaria control. (1/209)

During the past decade, the techniques of molecular and cell biology have been embraced by many scientists doing research on anopheline vectors of malaria parasites. Some of the most important research advances in molecular entomology have concerned the development of sophisticated molecular tools for procedures such as genetic and physical mapping and germ line transformation. Major advances have also been made in the study of specific biological processes such as insect defence against pathogens and the manner in which malaria parasites and their anopheline hosts interact during sporogony. One of the most important highlights of this research trend has been the emergence during the past year of a formal international Anopheles gambiae genome project, which at present includes investigators in several laboratories in Europe and the USA. Although much of this molecular research is directed towards the development of malaria control strategies that are probably many years from implementation, there are some important areas of molecular entomology that may have a more near-term impact on malaria control. We highlight developments over the past decade in three such areas that we believe can make important contributions to the development of near-term malaria control strategies. These areas are anopheline species identification, the detection and monitoring of insecticide susceptibility/resistance in wild anopheline populations and the determination of the genetic structure of anopheline populations.  (+info)

A soil emergence trap for collections of phlebotomine sand flies. (2/209)

The identification of breeding sites of sand flies is of great epidemiological interest. A soil emergence trap for investigating potential sand fly breeding sites is described. The trap was tested in two rural areas in the Mogi Guacu River Valley where the American cutaneous leishmaniasis is an endemic disease. Seventy-three sand fly individuals of three species, Lutzomyia intermedia s. l., L. whitmani and L. pessoai, were collected on the forest floor and peridomicile.  (+info)

A simplified model for predicting malaria entomologic inoculation rates based on entomologic and parasitologic parameters relevant to control. (3/209)

Malaria transmission intensity is modeled from the starting perspective of individual vector mosquitoes and is expressed directly as the entomologic inoculation rate (EIR). The potential of individual mosquitoes to transmit malaria during their lifetime is presented graphically as a function of their feeding cycle length and survival, human biting preferences, and the parasite sporogonic incubation period. The EIR is then calculated as the product of 1) the potential of individual vectors to transmit malaria during their lifetime, 2) vector emergence rate relative to human population size, and 3) the infectiousness of the human population to vectors. Thus, impacts on more than one of these parameters will amplify each other's effects. The EIRs transmitted by the dominant vector species at four malaria-endemic sites from Papua New Guinea, Tanzania, and Nigeria were predicted using field measurements of these characteristics together with human biting rate and human reservoir infectiousness. This model predicted EIRs (+/- SD) that are 1.13 +/- 0.37 (range = 0.84-1.59) times those measured in the field. For these four sites, mosquito emergence rate and lifetime transmission potential were more important determinants of the EIR than human reservoir infectiousness. This model and the input parameters from the four sites allow the potential impacts of various control measures on malaria transmission intensity to be tested under a range of endemic conditions. The model has potential applications for the development and implementation of transmission control measures and for public health education.  (+info)

The potential impact of integrated malaria transmission control on entomologic inoculation rate in highly endemic areas. (4/209)

We have used a relatively simple but accurate model for predicting the impact of integrated transmission control on the malaria entomologic inoculation rate (EIR) at four endemic sites from across sub-Saharan Africa and the southwest Pacific. The simulated campaign incorporated modestly effective vaccine coverage, bed net use, and larval control. The results indicate that such campaigns would reduce EIRs at all four sites by 30- to 50-fold. Even without the vaccine, 15- to 25-fold reductions of EIR were predicted, implying that integrated control with a few modestly effective tools can meaningfully reduce malaria transmission in a range of endemic settings. The model accurately predicts the effects of bed nets and indoor spraying and demonstrates that they are the most effective tools available for reducing EIR. However, the impact of domestic adult vector control is amplified by measures for reducing the rate of emergence of vectors or the level of infectiousness of the human reservoir. We conclude that available tools, including currently neglected methods for larval control, can reduce malaria transmission intensity enough to alleviate mortality. Integrated control programs should be implemented to the fullest extent possible, even in areas of intense transmission, using simple models as decision-making tools. However, we also conclude that to eliminate malaria in many areas of intense transmission is beyond the scope of methods which developing nations can currently afford. New, cost-effective, practical tools are needed if malaria is ever to be eliminated from highly endemic areas.  (+info)

Entomological and ecological aspects of six sylvatic species of triatomines (Hemiptera, Reduviidae) from the collection of the National Biodiversity Institute of Costa Rica, Central America. (5/209)

A total of 797 specimens of wild adult triatomines, belonging to six species from the entomological collections of the Costa Rican National Biodiversity Institute, was studied from the standpoint of their relative abundance, as reflected by light traps, distribution in the country, seasonal variations and climatic and altitudinal preferences. Triatoma dimidiata was the most abundant species (32.9% of the total specimens), with a very extensive distribution in different ecological zones, being more common between 100 to 400 m above sea level mainly at the end of the dry season. T. dispar was the third in frequency (21.5%), with narrower distribution, more abundant between 600 to 800 m and scarce during the dry season. Panstrongylus geniculatus and P. rufotuberculatus, second and fourth in frequency (22.1% and 15.1%, respectively), were widely distributed on both the Pacific and Caribbean basins, the former being more common between 80 to 270 m all year round and the latter below 800 m mainly during the first semester. Eratyrus cuspidatus which represented only 4.9% of the insects, was also present on both basins mainly below 200 m with a tendency to be scarce during certain months of the year, and was found in all types of ecological zones. Finally, Rhodnius pallescens, the least abundant species (3.6%) was restricted to very humid areas below 20 m, on the north side and Caribbean basin. With the exception of R. pallescens, males were more commonly found than females. Some epidemiological implications related to the six species are discussed.  (+info)

A mark-release-recapture experiment with Anopheles sinensis in the northern part of Gyeonggi-do, Korea. (6/209)

In order to study the range of flight and feeding activity of Anopheles sinensis, the dispersal experiment was conducted in Paju city, located in the northern part of Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea, during the period of 7th to 28th September 1998. Unfed females An. sinensis were collected in cowshed and released after being marked with fluorescent dye at 23:00 hours on the same day. Released female mosquitoes were recaptured everyday during 21 days using light traps, which were set at 10 sites in the cowsheds located 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 km north-northwest and north-northeast and at 3 sites located 1, 6 and 9 km toward south-west from the release point. In addition, to study the longest flight distance in one night, we set the light traps at 16 and 20 km toward north-northeast from the release site. All the collected mosquitoes were placed on filter papers and observed on UV transilluminator after treatment with one drop of 100% ethanol. Out of 12,773 females of An. sinensis released, 194 marked females mosquitoes were recaptured, giving 1.52% recapture rate. Of 194, 72 mosquitoes (37.1%) were recaptured in light traps from three places set at 1 km from the release point, 57 mosquitoes (29.4%) from two places at 1-3 km, 41 mosquitoes (21.1%) from three places at 3-6 km, 20 mosquitoes (10.3%) from three places at 6-9 km, and 4 mosquitoes (2.1%) from two places at 9-12 km. Since 170 female mosquitoes (87.6%) out of 194 marked mosquitoes were captured within 6 km from the release point, this flight radius represents the main activity area. An sinensis was found to be able to fly at least 12 km during one night.  (+info)

Field trials of an improved cost-effective device for detecting peridomestic populations of Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) in rural Argentina. (7/209)

An improved device for detecting peridomestic Triatoma infestans consisting of one-liter recycled Tetra Brik milk boxes with a central structure was tested using a matched-pair study design in two rural areas in Argentina. In Olta (La Rioja), the boxes were installed beneath the thatched roofs and on the vertical wooden posts of each peridomestic structure. After a 5-month exposure, at least one of the recovered boxes detected 88% of the 24 T. infestans-positive sites, and 86% of the 7 negative sites by timed manual collections at baseline. In Amama (Santiago del Estero), the boxes were paired with the best performing prototype tested before (shelter unit). After 3 months, some evidence of infestation was detected in 89% (boxes) and 79% (shelters) of 18-19 sites positive by timed collections, whereas 19% and 16% of 32 negative sites were positive, respectively. Neither device differed significantly in the qualitative or quantitative collection of every sign of infestation. The installation site did not modify significantly the boxes' sampling efficiency in both study areas. As the total cost of each box was half as expensive as each shelter unit, the boxes are thus the most cost-effective and easy-to-use tool for detecting peridomestic T. infestans currently available.  (+info)

Domestic Rhodnius ecuadoriensis (Hemiptera, Reduviidae) infestation in Northern Peru: a comparative trial of detection methods during a six-month follow-up. (8/209)

Two passive methods in the assessment of intradomiciliary infestation by Rhodnius ecuadoriensis were tested: (i) the Gomes Nu ez sensor box (GN), (ii) sheets of white typing paper and (iii) one active timed manual method. The study was carried out in the Alto Chicama River Valley, Province of Gran Chim , Department of La Libertad. The study design consisted of an initial searching of triatomines inside of the domestic environment by the manual capture active procedure (man/hour) covering all the studied houses. Then, matched pairs of GN boxes and paper sheets were simultaneously installed in the bedrooms of 207 households distributed in 19 localities. A comparative prospective trial of these passive detection devices were monitored at 2, 4 and, finally 6 months follow-up. Parasitological Trypanosoma rangeli and/or T. cruzi infections were investigated in two houses with high level of infestation by R. ecuadoriensis. 16.9% of the 207 households investigated by an initial active manual method were infested with R. ecuadoriensis. The proportion of infested houses fluctuated from 6.2 to 55.5% amongst the 19 localities investigated. T. rangeli natural infection was detected in R. ecuadoriensis specimens collected in two households. Parasite rates in the bugs ranged from 16.6 to 21.7% respectively. The most striking fact was an average rate of salivary gland infection ranging from 7.4 to 8.3%. At the end of the sixth month period, a cumulative incidence of 31.4% of positive GN boxes against 15.9% for paper sheets was recorded. All three methods combined detected domestic infestation in 129 (62.3%) of the 207 houses studied in the 19 localities. The range of houses infested varies from 6.7% to 92.9%. In areas with low bug density infestation rates, the methodology experienced in our studies, seems to be the best choice for investigations on domestic R. ecuadoriensis populations.  (+info)

Lexington, Ky. Who would have thought of mosquitoes being put to work to help decrease and control the mosquito population? University of Kentucky professor and researcher Stephen Dobson and his former graduate student, Jimmy Mains, thats who.. Dobson, professor of medical and veterinary entomology in the Department of Entomology, College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, and Mains have developed a technology that uses male mosquitoes to effectively sterilize females through a naturally occurring bacterium.. Most mosquito control companies use chemical pesticides which are sprayed out of trucks and planes, or maybe out of a backpack sprayer, Dobson said. Ours is a very different approach. By using a natural bacterium called Wolbachia and the mosquitoes innate ability to find mates, we are applying an approach which does not require chemicals.. Mains is a medical entomologist with the company recently formed by Dobson, MosquitoMate. The principal investigator on the project, Mains ...

Since 1937, the mission of the UESO is to further the knowledge of matters concerning entomology, bridge the gap between faculty, undergraduate students and graduate students, and for the general good fellowship of its members.. UESO is a school-year organization open to all Texas A&M undergraduates who are interested in entomology, regardless of their major. Socials are every first Thursday and meetings are every first and third Thursday. Other events include Chili Cook-off, Big Event, camping, collecting, local outreach, professional meetings and Replant.. Even though the department is small, with about 94 majors and 50 minors and double majors, getting to know everyone is still difficult. UESO helps to bring students with similar interests together through meetings, socials, and events. You have the opportunity to meet many people and make lasting friendships. UESO also works very closely with our advisors and faculty within the department to bridge the gap between professors and students; ...
Entomologists study insects and their relatives and use their findings to help people, animals, and plants. Of the many branches of entomology, one of the most interesting is that related to forensics . Forensic entomologists help to solve crimes by identifying insects and insect remains at crime scenes. For example, some flies are found only in specific times and places. The police can use such information to determine where and when a crime occurred. Other entomologists study insects that spread diseases in people. For example, malaria, an infectious disease that affects more people than any other, is spread by a mosquito. Entomologists specialized knowledge has helped to trace the spread of West Nile virus and Lyme disease in North America. Entomologists specializing in nervous systems test new brain drugs on cockroaches. Since their nerves work very similarly to those in humans, one can tell if a drug has potential to work on illnesses such as Parkinsons disease. Other entomologists use ...

Jeff Whitworth, Extension Entomologist: Holly Schwarting, Entomology Research Assoc.; Steve Watson, Agronomy; Mary Knapp, Weather Data Library. Thanks to the unusually warm winter, alfalfa weevil larvae are already present in some areas. Many more will no doubt be hatching in the next few days to weeks. Alfalfa weevils will continue to hatch and larvae continue to develop any time temperatures exceed 48°F.. Thus, it looks like larvae will be emerging, and damage progressing, relatively quickly. Whether this warm weather will compress the alfalfa weevil larval feeding so that the period of damage is not as stretched out as usual remains to be seen. There are also lady beetles active in the alfalfa fields, as well as a few pea aphids. The treatment threshold we use for alfalfa weevil insecticide applications is 30-50% infestation, i.e. 1 larva/2-3 stems.. Alfalfa weevils are cool-weather insects. Adults lay eggs in alfalfa fields in the fall or even the winter. Most of these eggs survive the ...

Roots of corn seedlings infested with needle nematode about one month after planting Several species of nematodes are parasitic on corn in Indiana. Even though these pests are not usually the sole reason for corn decline, they can magnify other problems. The plant parasitic nematodes that are normally found on corn in Indiana in order of their least to highest significance are: Root knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) Lesion nematode (Pratylenchus sp.), Dagger nematode (Xiphinema sp.), Lance nematode (Hoplolaimus sp.) and Needle nematode (Longidorus sp.). The needle nematodes often cause severe damage to corn. However certain conditions such as a cool wet spring and sandy soil have to be present in order for needle nematode to become a problem.. For more information, see Extension Entomology publication E-215-W Needle Nematode. ...

Crucial Evidence Provided By Forensic Entomologists Is Sometimes Dismissed In Court Cases. Forensic entomology can sometimes put a murderer behind bars, or worse. But this is not always the case. Prosecuting attorneys will not always make use of evidence provided by forensic entomologists, as the law does not always consider this sort of evidence to be reliable. However, when attorneys do prosecute crimes that hinge on evidence gathered by forensic entomologists, the evidence is typically pretty damning. Lawyers prosecuting an alleged murderer in an ongoing murder case have relied heavily on the strength of entomological forensic evidence. Unfortunately for the prosecuting attorneys, the testimony of the forensic entomologist tasked with investigating the murder case will be dismissed by the court. This particular case serves as a good example of how easily evidence gathered by forensic entomologists can be thrown out.. Neal Haskell, a forensic entomologist, provided testimony recently ...

Although no outbreak of illness from the Zika virus has been reported in Florida in recent months, it poses a danger.. Yellow fever and Asian tiger mosquitoes found in the state - and infected with the Zika virus - are good at transmitting the virus, new University of Florida research shows.. In rare cases, the virus can cause paralysis (Guillain-Barré Syndrome) and birth defects.. Researchers at the universitys Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and across the globe are keeping a close eye on the virus and studying how it is transmitted from mosquitoes to people.. Despite the absence of current local transmission in Florida, Zika will remain a public health threat for the foreseeable future in the Americas, said Barry Alto, an associate professor of entomology at the UF/IFAS Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory (FMEL) in Vero Beach, Florida.. Residents should follow standard precautions to protect themselves from mosquito bites. Follow guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease ...
All three have their charms. Lucilia maggots have an amazing ability to eat dead flesh and ignore the living, so theyre used in maggot therapy to eat away dead, infected tissue. This works fantastically, but of course assumes that you can talk someone with, say, an oozing foot ulcer into letting a mass of maggots eat away at their foot-I suppose you say to the person that theyre only going to eat your dead foot.. I thought talking to a forensic entomologist might help me appreciate my new housemates.

Although the geographic extent of endemic malaria transmission has been curtailed during the last century-in part through intensive mosquito control programs-the World Health Organization estimates that approximately 660,000 deaths were attributable to malaria in 2010 (World Health Organization 2013). The importance of mosquitoes to malaria transmission and control was first established by Ronald Ross more than a century ago, a discovery for which he was awarded the second Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1902. Subsequent studies by Batista Grassi and others revealed that only Anopheles mosquitoes, and not mosquitoes of other genera such as Culex or Aedes, were capable of transmitting the disease to humans. There are hundreds of species of Anopheles mosquitoes, and a century of medical entomology has established that only a few dozen species are important vectors of human malaria (Budiansky 2002). Even within those species, not all individual mosquitoes or populations are equally ...
A study on sampling of mosquitos using eco-friendly mosquito trap in around Jiwaji University Campus (India). Abstract : Mosquitoes are the most important among all arthropod vectors that causes human disease in the tropical conditions. In order to reduce the mosquito nuisance and risk of diseases caused by them it is essential to reduce mosquito populations. All Iinn Mosquito Trap/Killer was placed in four different outdoor locations. Out of total insects trapped, the percentage of mosquitoes was 36 %, 45 %, 35 % and 36 in case of Backyard of animal house, Backyard of Aryabhatt boys hostel, Front part and Fish pond area of School of Studies in Zoology, Jiwaji University, Gwalior respectively ...
My research investigates the molecular mechanisms of fluid secretion by the renal (Malpighian) tubules of mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti and Anopheles gambiae). Aedes mosquitoes are one of the most important vectors for spreading the viral-based illnesses of yellow fever and dengue fever to humans, whereas Anophelesmosquitoes are the primary vectors of malaria. Malpighian tubules are the kidneys of insects. Our kidneys filter our blood to produce a urine, but the Malpighian tubules of insects must actively secrete fluid to produce a urine. I am interested in elucidating how mosquitoes produce urine, because it is vital to their survival after consuming a human blood meal. That is, the Malpighian tubules excrete the excess fluid and salts absorbed from the blood they ingest. If we can identify key genes/proteins involved with urine production by mosquito Malpighian tubules, then we may be able to interfere with this process via genetic disruption or pharmacological agents, thereby making it less ...
The research in my laboratory focuses on the development of genetic strategies for the control of pest insect species. One important aspect of this is the use of gene vectors that efficiently introduce genes into these species. These gene vectors must be robust enough to allow the high frequency transformation of a target insect species yet be able to be easily manipulated so they can function as effective genetic tools. Transposable elements are small pieces of DNA that can move within and between genomes and some of these have been developed as rudimentary gene vectors in some insect species. We have participated in the isolation and development of two such transposable elements, the Hermes element from the housefly, Musca domestica and the Herves element from the malaria mosquito, Anopheles gambiae. Both are members of the hAT superfamily of transposable elements and this superfamily is related to V(D)J recombination system that is largely responsible for generating antibody diversity in the ...

Field trials were conducted to determine effects of cultivar and insecticide application on grain yield and yield loss of cowpea to insect pest during the 2008 and 2009 cropping seasons at Baga (13° 29ʺ N and 13° 32ʺ E), Lake Chad shore area of Nigeria. Three cowpea varieties (Kanannado, Borno brown and IT98k-1312), two insecticides [cypermethrin (30 g) + dimethoate (250 g) and neem seed aqueous extract] and three spray regimes (one each at budding, flowering and podding) were evaluated for the control of pest on cowpea. The treatments were laid in a strip-split plot design and replicated three times each. The results reveal that flower thrips (Megalurothrips sjostedti), Legume pod borer (Maruca vitrata), Blister beetle (Mylabris spp.) and Pod Sucking Bug (Anoplocnemi scurvipes) were the major insect pests of rainfed cowpea in the area. The variety Borno brown failed to produce flower in both seasons. IT98k-131-2 was more tolerant to damage by insect pests of budding, flowering and podding
West Nile Season runs from June through October, so we are only in the beginning. We had a large outbreak a couple of summers ago, so hopefully its fresh on your mind.

In the forest: The determination of the density and distribution of populations in a forest is critical to any successful management strategy aimed at reducing the impact of this species. Since this pest spends approximately ten months of its life cycle in the soil, monitoring of populations may be best accomplished through the use of soil sampling techniques. Individual tree and stand phenology should be monitored in order to better predict when a management tactic should be initiated. Foliar sampling techniques may prove useful in determining when an appropriate control measure should be initiated. The minute size of this species presents a tremendous challenge to researchers involved in developing effective and reliable population estimates. Quantitative sampling methods that predict population levels have not been developed, therefore, an economic threshold level has not been established for this pest in the forest.. When economically damaging populations are present, an application of a ...
Home gardeners are confronted with a large number of potential insect problems. The types of potential insect problems will depend on their location, health of their plants, and types of plants they grow. Depending on the type of plant, problems can range from rare to frequent. A pest management program for home gardeners should rely on proper identification of insect pests, effective use of preventive cultural controls, conservation of natural enemies, and use of chemical controls as a last resort if other control strategies are ineffective or unavailable for a particular problem. Cultural controls that help home gardeners reduce pest problems include proper site selection, sanitation of residues and weeds, use of resistant varieties, cultivation, crop rotation, altering planting and harvest dates appropriate timing and amount of irrigation and fertilization, and use of barriers and exclusion. Cultural controls are selected used preventively and selected according to the chances of particular ...
These guys have been all over the place in Salt Lake City, Utah. Im doing some google-fu to try and get more specific about what kind of Mayfly it might be.. The Utah County Health Department wants people to know that mayflies are not mosquitoes, and do not carry Zika. From their website:. Mayflies are not true flies but belong to the order Ephemeroptera, which means short lived. Adult mayflies live one to two days and do not feed. The adults molt once, leaving their old cast skin on the wall surface where it was shed. They are easily recognized by a triangular wing and two or three thread-like tails. Larvae are an important food for many freshwater fish. Eggs are laid on rocks or other objects in the water.. So far the information about suborders of mayfly that Ive been able to find has a lot to do with the nymphs development of thoracic shields and the fusing stages of forewings, so I doubt Ill be able to make an identification from this photograph alone. ...

by J.P. Michaud, Sarah Zukoff and Brian McCornack. The sugarcane aphid (SCA) has been causing a range of harvesting problems in central Kansas. In some cases, sticky honeydew has been gumming up combines, sometimes bringing harvest to a halt, or slowing combine speeds. Fortunately, provided the grain has hardened, you can wait for a week or so and this honeydew will be weathered by the elements (and sooty mold) so that it is no longer sticky. The sooty mold that grows on it is not toxic, and so is not a concern for the cattle for those who plan to graze the stubble. However, palatability and nutritional value of the stubble may be somewhat reduced if aphid infestations have been heavy.. A more widespread problem is that aphid infestations in maturing panicles have caused uneven ripening of the grain, which in turn has caused uneven drying. Harvest has been delayed in some cases because grain moisture measurements in a field can be so variable that a decision to harvest is difficult to ...
