Fundamental Biological Mechanism and Resistance of Insect Repellent which Make Worse the Liability of Malaria in Emerging Nations

Sarvananda Letchuman, Shashika M Thanthrige, Mohamed Shafras, Amal D Premarathne

Elimination of malaria has been successfully recorded, but still continues as a major health hazard in developing countries. As malaria control relies mainly on indoor residual spraying of insecticides, it has become a fear task due to widespread resistance in malaria vectors. However, any disease control studies taken can influence its success (vector control failures) and as a result, may have a direct effect on pathogen transmission. Currently, vector control strategies rely heavily on insecticide interventions. But unfortunately, the effectiveness of insecticide-based vector control is being overcome as mosquitoes develop resistance to insecticides. The most serious obstacles in mosquito control are insecticides resistance. This review has shown that insecticides are involved to eliminate vector-borne diseases. Therefore, effective management should be designed to monitor insecticide resistance at regular intervals.
