Five field collections of adult Aedes aegypti mosquitoes from different areas in Bangkok and Pathum Thani provinces were subjected to susceptibility tests against deltamethrin. Low levels of resistance were detected among all populations tested (RR50 = 8-17.2) compared to the susceptible strain, Bora (French Polynesia). Among the five populations tested, the BKH (Bang Khen, Bangkok) and PSC (Phasicharoen, Bangkok) populations showed a higher level of deltamethrin resistance than the other three… CONTINUE READING
