Findings on the Susceptibility profile and metabolic mechanisms involved in Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus resistant to DDT and deltamethrin in the Central African Republic suggest that regular, continuous monitoring of resistance is necessary in order to select the most effective adulticides for arbovirus control in Bangui.

Studies on Global genetic diversity of Aedes aegypti provides a reference database of genetic diversity that can be used to determine the likely origin of new introductions that occur regularly for this invasive species. The genetic uniqueness of many populations and regions has important implications for attempts to control Ae. aegypti, especially for the methods using genetic modification of populations. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27671732

Investigation of mechanisms of bendiocarb resistance in Anopheles gambiae populations from the city of Yaoundé, Cameroon highlights the probable implication of metabolic mechanisms in bendiocarb resistance in An. gambiae populations from Yaoundé and stresses the need for further studies leading to functional validation of detoxification genes involved in this resistance https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4994282/
