  • Reply to: Behavioural responses of females of two anopheline mosquito species to human-occupied, insecticide-treated and untreated bed nets   8 hours 44 min ago
    the study shows as several studies before that Anophèles females follow he expiratory Co² cloud emerging fro the top of he bednet and land there first time. If bednets Were sticky traps or if mosquitoes Were killed at first landing, only the roof was im ortant. However, this is not what is happening. If the mosquito cannot find a direct way to the arget, it starts flying around to find another entrance. So, a hole on the top of the net is worse than a hole on the side, but a hole on the side is fine for mosquitoes that survived and Were not too repelled by the first contact to the roof. This is why hutstudies with insecticide erated nets and holles at the side can note blood meals, especially on ashed nets or where mosquitoes have some pyretrhoid resistance

    Right here is the right website for anybody who really wants to understand this topic.

    You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that's been written about for many years.
    Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

    It's very straightforward to find out any topic on web as compared
    to books, as I found this post at this site.

    It's interesting that you're so dismissive of IV's response, below. It seems to me like the bulk of your concerns have been addressed quite substantially by their response. One that hasn't is electricity. Of course, there are places in Africa (and the USA) that don't have electricity. But it looks to me like enough of Africa's population has access to electricity that two years ago, more than 20% of the population of all but a few states of the continent already had the money, electricity and other infrastructure needed to support mobile phones*. How about a more even-handed response? How many years away is the tipping point? We've eliminated diseases with vaccines, even though they aren't 100% effective at preventing an individual exposure...
