Outdoor Biting Behaviour and Insecticide Resistance in Malaria Vectors Might Challenge Malaria Elimination in Southern Province, Zambia

This study aimed to monitor vector behavior, species composition, and vector susceptibility to insecticides used for malaria vector control to guide the malaria elimination agenda. Outdoor biting, early biting, pyrethroid insecticide resistance, and carbamate insecticide resistance were identified and could undermine elimination efforts. Additional interventions and sustainable insecticide resistance management strategies are likely to be required.
