|Title:||Evaluation of certain insecticides on nettings for their efficacy and wash resistance against mosquito species|
|Abstract:||Five insecticides (Bifenthrin, Deltamethrin, Etofenprox, Permethrin and Lamda cyhalothrin) recommended by WHO, at their recommended dose were compared for their efficacy and wash resistance through bioassay against mosquito vectors, <i style="">Culex quinquefasciatus, Aedes aegypti </i>and<i style=""> Anopheles stephensi</i>. Etofenprox treated nettings exhibited better knockdown and mortality than the other insecticides. The order of efficacy of the insecticides treated nettings was Etofenprox ≥ Deltamethrin > Lambda cyhalothrin > Permethrin > Bifenthrin.|
