Mosquitoes have evolved a type of genetic shield to protect themselves from chemical pesticides; human interventions have sparked an evolutionary response that allows them to resist pesticides that were designed to keep them at bay.

Mosquitoes have found ways to adapt to exposure to insecticides. Some advantageous mutations in insecticide target sites are big sources of resistance, mutations are increasing enzyme activity that sequesters or degrades insecticide before it makes its way to its target within the cell. Mosquitoes are changing their typical behaviors in order to prevent themselves from coming into contact with the pesticides.

Researcher Colince Kamdem wrote: “These changes are occurring at the molecular, physiological and behavioral level, and multiple changes are often happening at the same time.
