Abstract Chapter 1: The re-introduction of vector borne diseases in Greece poses a major public health problem and understanding vector population, composition and dynamics is fundamental to the development of effective disease control strategies. In this study we analyze the population structure in mosquitoes of the genus Culex, Anopheles and Aedes from different agricultural and urban environments in Greece. Our results highlight Thessaloniki, Evros and Attica regions as mosquito borne disease transmission hot spots and may prove useful in the guidance of control applications. Chapter 2: The re-introduction of vector borne diseases in Greece poses a major public health problem and use of insecticides (larvicides and adulticides) is the primary method for control of pathogen transmitting mosquitoes as well as nuisance species. Target species and knowledge about their insecticide resistance is an important pre-requirement for effective control strategies. In this study we analyze the insecticide resistance status of mosquito populations of the genus Culex, Anopheles and Aedes from different agricultural and urban environments in Greece. Our results indicate pyrethroid resistance in Cx. pipiens and Anopheles hyrcanus populations and susceptibility to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides.
