dc.description.abstractRecent research has raised the prospect of using insect fungal pathogens for the control of vector-borne diseases such as malaria. In the past, microbial control of insect pests in both medical and agricultural sectors has generally had limited success. We propose that it may now be possible to produce a cheap, safe and green tool for the control of malaria which, in contrast to most chemical insecticides, will not eventually be rendered useless by resistance evolution. Realising this potential will require lateral thinking by biologists, technologists and development agenciesen
