Resistance to organophosphates and carbamates in Anopheles albimanus Based on reduced sensitivity of acetylcholinesterase



Resistance to organophosphates and carbamates in Anopheles albimanus Based on reduced sensitivity of acetylcholinesterase



Journal of Economic Entomology 68(3): 295-297



In laboratory tests in California on the resistance of Anopheles albimanus Wied., the primary vector of malaria in Central America and northern parts of South America, to organophosphate and carbamate insecticides, a high degree of insensitivity of acetylcholinesterase to inhibition by paraoxon and propoxur was demonstrated in two strains of the mosquito that were highly resistant to parathion and propoxur.
