Laboratory insecticide susceptibility tests against Mansonia larvae



Laboratory insecticide susceptibility tests against Mansonia larvae



Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 7(4): 575-580



The insecticides Abate, DDT, Dowco-214 [O,O-dimethyl O-(3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridyl) phosphorothioate], Dursban, fenitrothion, fenthion, .gamma.-HCH, and malathion were tested against field collected 4th instar larvae of Mansonia from Penang Island, Malaysia. The larvae appeared to be highly susceptible to Dursban and Abate with LC50 values of 1.54 and 1.92 ppb, respectively. Other chemicals, in decreasing degree of effectiveness, were .gamma.-HCH, fenthion, P,P'-DDT, Dowco-214, fenithrothion and malathion. The potential use of these chemicals in Mansonia control was discussed. A simple method for collecting and testing Mansonia larvae was also described.
