Major achievements:  
  1. Plant sources for fructose to sand flies in nature was established

  2. Migratory population from endemic zone of Kala-azar is one of the important risk factors for introduction of the disease in new area 

  3. Mid night is the peak biting period for Phlebotomus argentipes (Diptera: Psychodidae)

  4. Natural infection of L.donovani flagellates in wild P.argentipes was observed microscopically and cultured successfully, Confirmed by useing molicular and immunological tools

  5. P. argentipes is still the vector of Kala-azar has been proved by DNA probe hybridisation method

  6. Morphological variation was observed in P.argentipes population

  7. Role of PKDL in transmission of VL through P.argentipes

  8. CDC-light trap was evaluated as the best method for sandfly collection in India

  9. Long lasting insecticide treated nets are not so effective in controlling sandfly in India

  10. Susceptibility status of P.argentipes against DDT has shown developing resistance in some part of Bihar. However it is 100% susceptible with Deltamethrin.
