The effects of constant temperature elevation on the longevity of Anopheles arabiensis adults. Adults of the resistant SENN DDT strain lived significantly longer when exposed to a constantly elevated temperature of 30 °C. This was true for adult females that emerged from larvae that were reared at 30 °C (SDFA) as well as those reared at 25 °C and only taken to 30 °C upon emergence (SDFB) (a). This was also true for SENN DDT males reared as larvae at 30 °C (SDMA) compared to their SENN counterparts (SBMA) as well as DDT males reared at 25 °C as larvae and then incubated at 30 °C upon emergence (SDMB) compared to their SENN counterparts (SBMB) (b). There were no significant differences in female longevity of the strains reared at 25 °C (c), as well as in male longevity (d), regardless of larval-rearing temperature
