Age-related changes in resistance to DDT in some species of mosquitoes

Age-related changes in resistance to DDT in some species of mosquitoes

Age-related resistance to DDT was studied in laboratory-bred Anopheles atroparvus, A. sacharovi, Aedes aegypti and Culex pipiens form molestus. In all 4 species, resistance decreased with age. Anopheles atroparvus was resistant only when newly emerged (on the day after flight), and by day 5 exhibited no resistance. A significant drop in resistance (45% mortality) occurred in 14-day-old individuals of A. sacharovi.

The mechanisms of DDT, permethrin and malathion resistance were determined indirectly by means of synergists inhibiting the detoxification enzymes (in Anopheles sacharovi, Anopheles stephensi, Aedes aegypti and Culex pipiens). It was found that me...
