- Evaluation of community-based strategies for Aedes aegypti control inside housesClara B Ocampo
Unidad de Entomología Médica, Centro Internacional de Entrenamiento e Investigaciones Medicas, Call, Colombia
Biomedica 29:282-97. 2009..Insecticide spraying has been the mainstay of mosquito control; however, its continuous use has selected for resistance. Other important methods of control involve community participation...
- Phlebotomine vector ecology in the domestic transmission of American cutaneous leishmaniasis in Chaparral, ColombiaCristina Ferro
Laboratorio de Entomologia, Instituto Nacional de Salud, Bogota, Colombia
Am J Trop Med Hyg 85:847-56. 2011..Blood sources identified were mainly human (85%). A high prevalence of infection was found in L. longiflocosa indoors (2.7%) and the peridomestic setting (2.5%). L. longiflocosa was responsible for domestic transmission in Chaparral...
