insecticide resistance

Western Kenyan Anopheles gambiae showing intense permethrin resistance harbour distinct microbiota

**Background** Insecticide resistance poses a growing challenge to malaria vector control in Kenya and around the world. Following evidence of associations between the mosquito microbiota and insecticide resistance, the microbiota of Anopheles …

Aedes Albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) Susceptibility Status to Agrochemical Insecticides Used in Durian Planting Systems in Southern Thailand

This represents the first report of the susceptibility status of *Ae. albopictus* from durian orchards in southern Thailand to agrochemical insecticides. Results showed complete susceptibility of these mosquitoes to chlorpyrifos, but reduced mortality following exposure to lambda-cyhalothrin, carbaryl, and imidacloprid, which is suggestive of the development of resistance. These findings provide new insights into the status of insecticide resistance in *Ae. albopictus* populations, with important implications for mosquito and mosquito-borne disease control in Thailand.
