Routledge I, Walker M, Cheke R, et al., 2018, Modelling the impact of larviciding on the population dynamics and biting rates of Simulium damnosum s.l.: implications for vector control as a complementary strategy for onchocerciasis elimination in Africa, Parasites & Vectors, Vol: 11, Pages: 1-16, ISSN: 1756-3305
Background:In 2012, the World Health Organization set goals for the elimination of onchocerciasis transmission by 2020 in selected African countries. Epidemiological data and mathematical modelling have indicated that elimination may not be achieved with annual ivermectin distribution in all endemic foci. Complementary and alternative treatment strategies (ATS), including vector control, will be necessary. Implementation of vector control will require that the ecology and population dynamics of Simuliumdamnosum sensu latobe carefully considered.Methods:We adapted our previous SIMuliid POPulation dynamics (SIMPOP) model to explore the impact of larvicidal insecticides on S.damnosums.l.biting rates in different ecological contexts and to identify how frequently and for how long vector control should be continued to sustain substantive reductions in vector biting. SIMPOP was fitted to data from large-scale aerial larviciding trials in savannah sites (Ghana) and small-scale ground larviciding trials in forest areas (Cameroon). The model was validated against independent data from Burkina Faso/Côte d’Ivoire (savannah) and Bioko (forest). Scenario analysis explored the effects of ecological and programmatic factors such as pre-control daily biting rate (DBR) and larviciding scheme design on reductions and resurgences in biting rates.Results: The estimated efficacy of large-scale aerial larviciding in the savannah was greater than that of ground-based larviciding in the forest. Small changes in larvicidal efficacy can have large impacts on intervention success. At 93% larvicidal efficacy (a realistic value based on field trials), 10 consecutive weekly larvicidal treatments would reduce DBRs by 96% (e.g. from 400 to 16bites/person/day). At 70% efficacy, and for 10 weekly applications, the DBRwould decrease by 67% (e.g. from 400 to 132bites/person/day). Larviciding is more likely to succeed in areas with lower water temperatures and where blackfly species have lo
Matthews GA, Clayton J, Bals T, et al., 2016, Risk reduction in pesticide application - A conceptual framework, International Advances in Pesticide Application, Publisher: Association of Applied Biologists, Pages: 169-176, ISSN: 0265-1491
Pesticides are heavily criticised by environmental groups and others who argue that theirinefficient application pollutes our environment. They are, however, still essential to supportfood production and human well being. The complex process of transferring a pesticidefrom a container to the biological target requires a holistic approach to look at all sourcesof pesticide losses to reduce risks in application. As the majority of pesticides are appliedas sprays, a conceptual framework of the spray application process from spray planning(e.g. dose selection, timing, treatment plan), mixing, filling and cleaning, spray atomisation,transport and deposition, weathering and run off is considered. This is an attempt to helpidentify those areas of the spray application process of most importance for the protectionof the environment and human health.
