Insecticide resistance in the malaria vector Anopheles arabiensis (Diptera: Culicidae ) and impact of hydropower dam on malaria in Ethiopia Ghent University
Identification of Belgian mosquito species (Diptera: Culicidae) by DNA barcoding Institute of Tropical Medicine University of Antwerp
Since its introduction in 2003, DNA barcoding has proven to be a promising method for the identification of many taxa, including mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae). Many mosquito species are potential vectors of pathogens, and correct identification in all life stages is essential for effective mosquito monitoring and control. To use DNA barcoding for species identification, a reliable and comprehensive reference database of verified DNA ...

Pesticide resistance and characterization of resistance mechanisms in populations of Anopheles arabiensis (Diptera : Culicidae) and Tetranychus urticae (Acari : Tetranychidae) from Ethiopia Ghent University
Belgium on the lookout for exotic mosquito species (Diptera: Culicidae) Research Institute for Nature and Forest
number of interceptions in Belgium and suitability models developed for Aedes
albopictus (Skuse) in Europe, EMS are likely to establish and spread in Belgium.
A prerequisite for their control is their early detection. Therefore, the Belgian
federal authorities and the federated entities funded a 3-year active monitoring
project (MEMO) (July ...
Changes in species richness and spatial distribution of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) inferred from museum specimen records and a recent inventory: a case study from Belgium suggests recent expanded distribution of arbovirus and malaria vectors Institute of Tropical Medicine
First evidence of high knockdown resistance frequency in Anopheles arabiensis (Diptera: Culicidae) from Ethiopia Institute of Tropical Medicine Ghent University University of Antwerp
Introduction and establishment of the exotic mosquito species **Aedes japonicus japonicus** (Diptera: Culicidae) in Belgium University of Antwerp
First record of the West Nile virus bridge vector Culex modestus Ficalbi (Diptera Culicidae) in Belgium, validated by DNA barcoding Institute of Tropical Medicine
A thorough knowledge of the presence and spatio-temporal distribution patterns of vector species are pivotal to assess the risk of mosquito-borne diseases in Europe. In 2018, a Culex larva was collected during routine monitoring activities to intercept exotic Aedes mosquito species in the port of Antwerp (Kallo, Belgium). The larva, collected from a pond in mid-September, was morphologically identified as Culex modestus, and this ...
