Thanks to Greg Folkers for sending the link to this report in Insects: Biological Control of Mosquito Vectors: Past, Present, and Future. The abstract:
Mosquitoes represent the major arthropod vectors of human disease worldwide transmitting malaria, lymphatic ﬁlariasis, and arboviruses such as dengue virus and Zika virus. Unfortunately, no treatment (in the form of vaccines or drugs) is available for most of these diseases and vector control is still the main form of prevention.
The limitations of traditional insecticide-based strategies, particularly the development of insecticide resistance, have resulted in signiﬁcant efforts to develop alternative eco-friendly methods. Biocontrol strategies aim to be sustainable and target a range of different mosquito species to reduce the current reliance on insecticide-based mosquito control.
In this review, we outline non-insecticide based strategies that have been implemented or are currently being tested. We also highlight the use of mosquito behavioural knowledge that can be exploited for control strategies.
