Differences between NIR and MIR spectra obtained from dried mosquito samples collected using ATR-FTIR spectrometer. Compared to near-infrared (NIR), mid-infrared (MIR) allows detection of changes in chemical composition of the samples. Its wavelengths are more sensitive to fundamental vibration of molecular bonds and the different isolated peaks contain information of different chemical components in the mosquito cuticle
