Figure 9

Differential mortality in malaria-infected and malaria-free mosquitoes. Comparison of speed of spread of resistance and consequent loss of transmission control for populations treated with one of five fungal biopesticides with differential mortality rates in malaria-infected mosquitoes. Plots show the proportion of the population with resistant phenotypes, and the corresponding values for population-level reductions in infectious bites per unit of time compared to an untreated population. The biopesticides all have day 3 initiation of a 72% daily mortality rate for malaria infected mosquitoes, giving an initial 99% reduction in infectious bites per time period.
