is a major vector of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. It is amenable to control by indoor residual insecticide spraying and insecticide-treated bed nets owing to strong endophagic and endophilic tendencies (Gillies & De Meillon 1968; Sinka . 2010). However, the emergence of resistance to insecticides in several populations (Hargreaves et al. 2000; Casimiro . 2006; Coetzee . 2006; Morgan . 2010) necessitates the development of tailored resistance management strategies that could include the use of insecticides in conjunction with biological components.
