Abstract:Vector insects are typically blood-sucking pests, including mosquitoes, ticks, kissing bugs, fleas, midges, and sandflies. These insects can transmit a variety of infectious disease pathogens including, malaria, dengue fever, Kikonkenia fever and Zika fever that seriously endanger human health. The integrated control of vector insects is an important way of controlling such infectious diseases. This paper summarizes new methods, theories and other progress in this field over the past five years both home and abroad, and compares differences in the study of vector insects in China with that in other countries. We also discuss the strategic demands and key directions for future research on vector insects.
