Sub-lethal pipeline

After exposure in one of the behavioural suite tests, each mosquito is individually monitored for any delayed effects of insecticide exposure. 

We measure:

  • Willingness to take a blood meal post-insecticide exposure;
  • Volume of ingested blood meal
  • Effects on fecundity (oviposition, number of eggs laid per female, hatch rate)
  • Longevity until natural death
