Long-term control of Aedes aegypti, the vector of dengue haemorrhagic fever in Thailand, was obtained by 2 thorough applications of fenitrothion mist applied at a target dosage rate of 0.1 ml per m(3) of room space. Perfect control lasted for 6-7 months after treatment and densities were substantially reduced for up to a year after treatment. Recovery of the population was still slow up to almost 16 months after treatment. This degree of control was achieved by the immediate mortalities… CONTINUE READING
