To develop a new strategy for control of exophilic/exophagic malaria vectors which rest on peridomestic foliage, Anopheles albimanus was used for laboratory bioassays of mosquito adulticides applied to various vegetation types. Of the three classes of insecticide tested, the pyrethroid (permethrin at 112 g/ha) showed greater foliar persistence than either the carbamate (bendiocarb at 340 g/ha) or the organophosphorus compound (malathion at 277 g/ha). Field evaluation of barrier spraying against… CONTINUE READING
