Pyrethroid And DDT Resistance And Organophosphate Susceptibility Among Anopheles Spp. Mosquitoes, Western Kenya
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4672417
Description:We conducted standard insecticide susceptibility testing across western Kenya and found that the Anopheles gambiae mosquito has acquired high resistance to pyrethroids and DDT, patchy resistance to carbamates, but no resistance to organophosphates. Use of non-pyrethroid-based vector control tools may be preferable for malaria prevention in this region.
