Efficacies of locally produced, sustained release granular formulations of Bacillus sphaericus (BS) strain 2362 and B. thuringiensis israelensis (BTI) were compared with commercial liquid concentrates of the same bacteria in cesspits and rain-filled puddles in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Duration of control was dependent on the product, the transient nature of some sites, and the target mosquito larvae. BS granules applied at the rate of 3.0 g/m2 (30 kg/ha) reduced Culex quinquefasciatus Say 99… CONTINUE READING
