Laboratory and field evaluation of three insect growth regulators against mosquito vectors



Laboratory and field evaluation of three insect growth regulators against mosquito vectors



Indian Journal of Medical Research 87(JAN): 24-31



Three new compounds OMS 3009, OMS 3013 and OMS 2015 were evaluated for insect growth regulating (IGR) activity against mosquito larvae under laboratory and field conditions. In the laboratory, OMS 3009 (CME 13406) when tested against first and third instar larvae of different mosquito species showed higher level of activity than OMS 3013 and OMS 2015. While Aedes aegypti was more susceptible to OMS 3009 and OMS 2015, Anopheles stephensi was more susceptible to OMS 3013. All the compounds were found effective for only one week in cesspits at doses ranging from 0.05-1.0 mg/l when evaluated against Culex quinquefasciatus. However, OMS 3009 and OMS 3013 were found effective for 3 and 6 wk in cement tanks with clear water at doses of 0.5 and 0.05 mg/l.
