A simple field method for direct detection of an altered acetylcholinesterase (AChE)-type organophosphate and carbamate resistance mechanism in individual insects was developed. The test will allow accurate differentiation by eye, on the basis of a colour change, of homozygous-susceptible and heterozygous or homozygous-resistant individuals. In initial field trials of this test in Sri Lanka, Anopheles nigerrimus Giles and Culex tritaeniorhynchus Giles were shown to contain this type of… CONTINUE READING
