  • Alternative Title:
    Insecticide resistance in a vector population is initially detected and characterized by using some sort of bioassay to determine whether a particular insecticide is able to control a vector at a given time. Ideally, this fundamental question should be answered before a particular insecticide is chosen and procured for vector control. ; The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) bottle bioassay is a surveillance tool for detecting resistance to insecticides in vector populations. It is designed to help determine if a particular formulation of an insecticide is able to control a vector at a specific location at a given time. This information, combined with results of bioassays using synergists and those of biochemical and molecular assays, can assist in determining which insecticide should be used if resistance is detected. ; The aim of this document is to provide a practical laboratory guideline that describes how to per- form and interpret the CDC bottle bioassay. ;
