Author(s): Shashi Meena
Abstract: The aedes mosquitoes are efficient vector causing various infectious diseases across the world. Dengue outbreak is a major threat to human health in various provinces of India. Despite of dry season in Rajasthan a very high number of dengue fever cases have recorded. This review emphasized current status of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes abundance, their key breeding habitats and susceptibility to currently applied insecticide measures in order to know the role of vector in transmission of several infectious diseases in northern-west state, Rajasthan. Data highlighted that mostly cases of dengue occurred after the monsoon season. The dengue vector density was found to correlate with rainfall, temperature and relative humidity fluctuations. Due to continuous and unabated use of insecticides in agriculture sector and public health progressively started to selection pressure, inducing rapid development of resistance in mosquitoes vectors. The data related to insecticide susceptibility interpreted and even explored development of resist come up with a background for an understanding to trigger the development of novel tools and alternative strategies to control aedes mosquitoes population concerned with public health.
