      Mosquito-Borne Diseases. Mosquitoes are vectors for diseases, which means they can transmit diseases from one human or animal to another. The mosquito population is hard to control, and they often develop resistance to insecticides, making the containment and elimination of mosquito-borne diseases difficult. For more than 60 years, SC Johnson has been working to develop products that help families avoid insects that may transmit disease. But until recently, a particular type of pest control protection method has only been speculated to be useful solution. Spatial repellents - meaning mosquito coils, mats and liquid electrics release an insecticide into the air within a space - had not been.

      Your book deals with adaptation, both mosquitoes’ evolved resistance to chemicals and human adaptations, like sickle cell or Duffy negativity, to mosquito-borne disease. How do the timelines of these two adaptations compare to each other? Evidence suggests that mosquitoes .

Vector-borne infectious diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and plague, cause a significant fraction of the global infectious disease burden; indeed, nearly half of the world’s population is infected with at least one type of vector-borne pathogen (CIESIN, ; WHO, a).
