Abstract
Mosquitoes host and pass on to humans a variety of disease-causing pathogens such as infectious viruses and other parasitic microorganisms. The emergence and spread of insecticide resistance is threatening the effectiveness of current control measures for common mosquito vector borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue and Zika. Therefore, the emerging resistance to the widely used pyrethroid insecticides is an alarming problem for public health. Among the new approaches implemented for pest control, one of the most promising is RNA interference (RNAi). The aim of this study was to provide a feasible RNAi solution that can be applied on wild pyrethroid resistant m...
