Differential sensitivity to Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis and temephos in field mosquito populations of Ochlerotatus cataphylla (Diptera: Culicidae): toward resistance?

Abstract

In the present study, four populations of the same field mosquito species, Ochlerotatus cataphylla, were sampled over the Rh6ne-Alpes region (France), and their respective sensitivity to the organophosphate temephos and the bacterio-insecticide Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) was measured. The results obtained in toxicological tests showed… (More)
