Artificial Diets for Aedes and Anopheles Species

Stephen Dobson of the University of Kentucky in the U.S. will adapt their lyophilized mosquito feed formulation to support growth of different disease-relevant mosquito species for control efforts. They will test their lyophilized formulation, which can be stored long term, on other Anopheles species and on Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with the intracellular bacterium Wolbachia, which are being used as a dengue fever control strategy. They will also test three different delivery methods to see if they can reduce associated costs by simplifying delivery.
