Weiguo Fang of Zhejiang University and Guoding Zhu of Jiangsu Institute of Parasitic Diseases in China together with their international partner Abdoulaye Diabaté of Institut de Recherche en Sciences de La Santé in Burkina Faso, by referring to the widely used small farmer-operated factories for production of entomopathogenic fungal spores in China, will develop a spore production technology for the transgenic Metarhizium strain, which is cost-effective, of low technological bar and can be easily implemented in low-and middle-income countries and regions. A novel bifunctional device will also be provided for outdoor mosquito control. Currently, mycoinsecticides and their release devices are only suitable for indoor mosquito control.
