Cowpea, Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp., is the most cultivated and consumed legume in West Africa and is typically attacked by several insect pests, including Maruca vitrata, leading to reduced yields. This study assessed under laboratory conditions the efficacy of neem oil and M. vitrata multi-nucleopolyhedrovirus (MaviMNPV) against M. vitrata eggs as alternatives to second generation pesticides. Hatching and mortality rates after biopesticide application of neem oil, MaviMNPV, and the two in com...

The control of major insect crop pests of cowpea in Africa often involves synthetic pesticides to protect these crucial agricultural products. However, consequent harms to the environment, humans, animals and beneficial insects by these synthetic pesticides have driven a search for more sustainable integrated insect pest management (IPM) approaches, including the use of biological controls and neem (Azadirachta indica A. Juss) oil as alternatives to synthetic pesticides for the control of the po...

Le niebe est une culture alimentaire et socioeconomique importante en Afrique de l’Ouest. Cependant, son rendement est bas en raison de la pression des bioagresseurs. Cette etude a ete conduite aupres des producteurs du niebe pour recenser les principales contraintes entomologiques et les methodes de lutte utilisees. Des focus groupes ont ete organises avec des groupes de 25 a 35 producteurs dans 20 villages des regions de Maradi et Zinder. Il ressort que le niebe occupe les 1/3 des surfaces cul...

Abstract Cytochrome P450s are part of a super-gene family that has undergone gene duplication, divergence, over-expression and, in some cases, loss of function. One such case is the 91-R and 91-C strains of common origin, in Drosophila melanogaster , whereby 91-R (DDT resistant strain) overexpresses Cyp4p1 and Cyp4p2 and both genes are lost in 91-C (DDT susceptible strain). In this study, we used a comparative approach to demonstrate that transcription of Cyp4p1 and Cyp4p2 were constitutively up...

Abstract Reimbursements linked to performance have encouraged health systems to implement hospital-to-home transitional care services that improve patient experience and reduce the risk of avoidable hospital readmissions. Previous work indicates the potential for community health workers and peer coaches serving as patient navigators to improve patient experience and health outcomes, but have not been rigorously tested to improve hospital-to-home transitions in minority serving institutions. The...

Le niebe ( Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp (Fabaceae) est une culture importante dont le rendement est faible en raison de fortes attaques des insectes ravageurs. Cette etude a ete entreprise pour comparer l’efficacite de cinq biocides sur la gestion des principaux insectes ravageurs dans la region de Zinder au niveau de quatre villages en 2014 et vingt-cinq villages en 2015. Un dispositif en blocs de Fischer a deux repetitions et six traitements a ete mis en place avec trois producteurs par village...

Abstract While insecticide resistance presents a challenge for those intent on controlling insect populations, these challenges have also generated a set of tools that can be used to ask fundamental biological questions about that resistance. Numerous species of insects have evolved resistance to multiple classes of insecticides. Each one of these species and their respective resistant populations represent a potential tool for understanding the molecular basis of the evolution of resistance. Ho...
