Laboratory evaluation of 3 repellents against Anopheles stephensi in the Islamic Republic of Iran
AbstractThis study evaluated the repellency effect of 3 topical repellents [permethrin, DEET and neem tree extract] against 3-5 day old females of laboratory and field strains of Anopheles stephensi. Probing/biting rates on the shaved belly of white rabbits were counted. Effective dose [ED] 50 and ED95 values were calculated by probit statistic software. The results revealed ED50 values of 0.007, 0.005 and 0.191 mg/cm2 for permethrin, DEET and neem, respectively, against the field strain. The figures for the laboratory strain were 0.006, 0.007, 0.156 mg/cm2. Major heterogeneity of response was observed using DEET. Although neem was the least effective agent, extracts of locally produced neem oil offer a promising repellent against mosquito biting

Laboratory and field evaluation of two formulations of Bacillus thuringiensis M-H-14 against mosquito larvae in the Islamic Republic of Iran, 2012 Gezelbash, Z.; Vatandoost, H.; Abai, M.R.; Raeisi, A.; Rassi, Y.; Hanafi Bojd, A.A.; Jabbari, H; Nikpoor, F. (2014)Due to low efficacy in the field of a local commercial product of Bacillus thuringiensis M-H-14 [Bioflash[registered sign], a study was designed to assess its efficacy in laboratory, glass standard aquarium, semi-field and field conditions at both target and higher dosages against immature stages of Anopheles spp.and Culex spp.In laboratory conditions, the LCvalues of wettable powder and granule formulations were 227 and 1031 ppm respectively against a susceptible strain of An.stephensi.Following application of wettable powder and granules ...
