Arthropod-borne viruses transmitted by Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus represent a major public health concern at a global scale. The insecticidal treatments exerted on both species have selected for various resistance mechanisms within wild populations. Although the impact of insecticide resistance on the efficacy of vector control operations remains broadly unknown, it is of primary importance to implement strategies for preserving the efficacy of treatments and reducing the pathogen transmission during epidemics. For this purpose, there are urgent needs for new tools for vector control and insecticide resistance monitoring to improve the management of insecticide resistance in Aedes species.
