New ‘super mosquito’ discovered in Mali | Vaccine News Daily

CRAP!

A new “super mosquito” has been discovered in Mali and is being researched by a team of researchers and scientists at the University of California-Davis.

Interbreeding among two malaria mosquito species in the West African country has resulted in a new mosquito hybrid that’s shown to be resistant to insecticide-treated bed nets.

“It’s ‘super’ with respect to its ability to survive exposure to the insecticides on treated bed nets,” UC Davis medical entomologist and research team leader Gregory Lanzaro said.
