Laboratory bioassays of mosquito coil formulations against mosquitoes of public health importance in malaysia



Laboratory bioassays of mosquito coil formulations against mosquitoes of public health importance in malaysia



Tropical Biomedicine 4(1): 13-18



Four mosquito coil formulations containing d-allethrin (0.19 or 0.28%) and d-trans allethrin (0.12 or 0.16%) have been tested against five species of mosquitoes of public health importance in glass chambers (70 .times. 70 .times. 70 cm). Knockdown values indicated that Armigeres subalbatus and Culex quinquefasciatus were more tolerant towards the two synthetic pyrethroids in coil formulations. KT50 values for d-allethrin (0.19%) against Aedes aegypti, Anopheles balabacensis, Ar. subalbatus, Cx. quinquefasciatus and Mansonia uniformis were 2.39, 2.24, 5.67, 4.32 and 2.16 minutes, respectively. Mean 24-hour mortality values for the five mosquito species in the same sequence were 25.0, 62.3, 94.6, 5.1 and 95.4%, respectively. A standard bioassay method for mosquito coils is described.
