[Age-related changes in the sensitivity of mosquito species to DDT].

Abstract

The effect of age on the level of resistance to DDT was studied on laboratory mosquito strains of An. sacharovi, An. atroparvus, Ae. aegypti, C. p. molestus. The highest resistance level was observed in juvenile mosquitos 0-1 days after flying out. The trend towards the increase in sensitivity with age common for all mosquito species is revealed.
