BACKGROUND In Brazil, dengue vector control is hampered by the resistance of Aedes aegypti L. populations to organophosphates (OPs). Insect growth regulators (IGRs) are a promising alternative, as their mechanisms of action are different from those of conventional insecticides. The authors analysed the effect of the IGR triflumuron, a chitin synthesis inhibitor, on the Ae. aegypti insecticide-susceptible strain Rockefeller, as well as on field populations both susceptible (TemS) and resistant… CONTINUE READING
