How density dependence affects pest population control

Many pest populations are regulated by density-dependent factors. One example of this is in the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, where larval survival is affected by intraspecific larval competition. Reducing adult populations of Aedes aegypti can reduce the number of larvae, which can paradoxically lead to an increase in the number of adults in the system if intraspecific larval competition is substantially reduced. I am interested in how these factors are quantitatively studied and how our assumptions about density dependence change projected population suppression.
