Pyrethroids are especially valuable because they can kill mosquitoes quickly in low doses and are cheap to produce and buy, according to Daniel Strickman, senior program officer for vector control with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which is funding the development of new insecticides.
Yet Aedes aegypti, the species of mosquito that spreads Zika, has developed "really rock-solid resistance" to pyrethroid insecticides in large areas of the world, Dr. Strickman said.

"If you're using freshly treated nets in a smallish stream or a bay in the lake, it's quite likely you're going to kill fish you don't intend to kill," said Dan Strickman, a senior program officer for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has invested heavily in malaria research and development.

Dr. Daniel A. Strickman, senior project officer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a medical entomologist who, through a series of many kinds of jobs, has had the pleasure to experience entomology from basic research to practical application.
Dr. Strickman was born in San Diego, California, in 1953. His interest in entomology began with an insect collection in eighth grade. Attending Dartmouth College for two years in 1971-1973, he transferred to the University of California, Riverside, in order to take an entomology course, but ended up staying until graduation with a B.A. in biology in 1974. Going immediately to graduate school at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, he studied floodwater mosquitoes with Dr. William Horsfall, receiving his master's degree in 1976 and his doctorate in 1978. Dr. Strickman's first job was in the Peace Corps serving as a professor at the National University of Asunción, Paraguay. From there he served in the U.S. Air Force as a captain and consultant entomologist at the Occupational and Environmental Health Laboratory, Brooks AFB, Texas. Transferring to the Army in 1984, he worked for the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in a series of research and administrative assignments, including work on mosquito taxonomy, scrub typhus, dengue, malaria, and repellent development, and served as chief of the Department of Entomology, and associate director. During his 22-year military career, Dr. Strickman had three deployments, to Honduras, Korea, and the Middle East. As a colonel, he served as a consultant to the Surgeon General. He retired from the Army in 2003 and worked for three years as an entomologist at the Santa Clara County (California) Vector Control District, then eight years as national program leader and director of overseas laboratories for the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and finally to his current position at the Gates Foundation in 2014. Dr. Strickman has published 110 peer-reviewed papers, 12 book chapters, two co-edited books on repellents, and one co-authored book on personal protection from biting and stinging arthropods. His accomplishments have been team efforts that led to characterization of larval mosquito movement, discovery of drug-tolerant scrub typhus, elimination of Aedes aegypti from a series of Thai villages, and elimination of Aedes albopictus from San José, California, the lowest rate of disease in any U.S. conflict during the first six months of Operation Enduring Freedom, as well as the formation of the Foundation for the Study of Invasive Species in Buenos Aires. He served as subject editor for the Journal of Medical Entomology from 2006 to 2010. Dr. Strickman has received the Dow AgroSciences IPM Team Award (2014), a Bronze Medal from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (2011), the John N. Belkin Award from the American Mosquito Control Association (2010), and the GreenGov Award from the Office of the President (2010). His highest military medals were the Legion of Merit (2005) and the Bronze Star (2002).

"That was done by distributing radiation sterilized male flies," said Dan Strickman, senior program officer for vector control at The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The sterile flies caused the population to crash, and the strategy successfully eradicated the worms all the way down to Colombia. "That is maintained to this day," said Strickman, "by release of sterile male screwworm flies in about a hundred kilometer section of Panama."

Dan Strickman, senior program officer for Vector Control at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health Program, said, "We are at a very exciting time for research on insect repellents.
(The Gates Foundation was not involved in the study.) "For decades, the field concentrated on screening compounds for activity, with little or no understanding of how chemicals interacted with mosquitoes to discourage biting. Use of modern techniques that combine molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology has generated evidence on how mosquitoes perceive odors," Strickman said.
