Toxicological and residual effect of Deltamethrin and Chlorpyrifos against the German cockroach, Blattella germanica (Linnaeus) (Insecta: Blattodea: Blattellidae)

The toxicological and residual properties of two insecticidal agents, Deltamethrin and Chlorpyrifos were evaluated against the German cockroach, Blatella germanica in laboratory bioassay. The insecticides were diluted in both aqueous and oil-based solvents and tested against the roaches in pre-determined concentrations and untreated control. Experimental cages were either completely sealed after exposure or perforated...

Susceptibility test of female anopheles mosquitoes to ten insecticides for indoor residual spraying (IRS) baseline data collection in Northeastern Nigeria

Indoor residual spraying (IRS) was scaled up in Nigeria to supplement long lasting insecticide treated nets (LLINs) for malaria vector control. The success of IRS partly defends on the susceptibility of local anopheles mosquitoes to insecticides. The WHO standard...
