Insecticide resistance in mosquitoes: An overview and strategies to mitigate insecticide resistance development
Author(s): Ahmed Tabbabi, Adel Rhim and Jabeur Daaboub
Abstract: The resistance of pathogen vectors that cause human or animal diseases to insecticides affects both the economy and public and veterinary health. The aim was to present the main mechanisms of resistance to insecticides as well as the current situation in terms of resistance to chemical insecticides in the main mosquito vector in Tunisia. Management strategies were done so that pesticides can continue to be used as crop management tools in the future. In such cases, the strategy chosen to resistance management must be based on thorough knowledge of the resistance implications of the used insecticides and the biology of resistant vectors. Implementation of insecticide resistance management strategies or preservation of insecticide susceptibility is now inevitable due to the increase in the number of species developing insecticide resistance mechanisms and the decrease in the number of insecticides.
