The effects of permethrin on Ctenocephalides felis, the commonest flea pest of livestock in Tanzania

, : The effects of permethrin on Ctenocephalides felis, the commonest flea pest of livestock in Tanzania. Insect science and its application2(5-6): 593-597

Ctenocephalides felis adults obtained from young goats belonging to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (SUA) were reared in captivity and the offsprings used for testing against permethrin. A total of 1260 fleas were exposed to 0.005% permethrin dust (0.5% a.i. diluted with fine sand) for periods varying from 30 min to 24 hr. Additionally, white rats infested with 2400 fleas were exposed to a similar mixture for 24 hr. In the first set of tests, 100% mortality was obtained after a 2-hr exposure of the insects to the insecticide. Similarly, in the second set of tests, all the fleas were found dead at the end of 24-hr exposure. It was generally concluded that permethrin is very effective against this flea species and that it could be used for controlling the ectoparasite in livestock, animal barns and residential houses in the area. It was finally recommended that similar tests with other flea species in the country, especially in plague endemic areas were desirable.
