Tania González; Juan A Bisset; Cristina Díaz; María M Rodríguez & Mauro Blanco Brandolini

Abstract

Culex quinquefasciatus Say 1823 is a vector of equine encephalitis and filariasis,
and is one of the mosquito species most studied for insecticide resistance. Studies to detect
incipient resistance in the field, and its mechanisms, are very important to design effective
strategies to avoid its development.
