Studies on the efficacy of Toxorhynchites larvae and three larvivorous fish species for the control of Aedes larval populations in water-storage tanks in the Matale district of Sri Lanka. Wijesinghe, W M G S; Wickramasinghe, M B; Kusumawathie, P H D; Jayasooriya, G A J S K; De Silva, B G D N K (2009-12)A study was conducted to compare the feeding efficacy of Toxorhynchites larvae (L3 & L4) and three larvivorous fish species on Aedes larvae. Ground-level cement water-storage tanks (20%–80%) and water-storing barrels (8.33%–54.55%) formed the majority of Aedes-positive outdoor containers. Ae. albopictus, Ae. macdougali and Ae. vittatus were recorded in water-storage tanks, with Ae. macdougali being dominant. In the laboratory, the consumption rate (time to devour 10 Ae. albopictus L3 larvae in a vessel of 78.57 cm2 of surface area) for Toxorhynchites ...
Effectiveness of pyriproxyfen-controlled release block against larvae of Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Chen, CD; Andy-Tana, WA; Loke, SR; Lee, HL; Yasmin, AR; Sofian-Azirun, M (2008-12)This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of a commercially available pyriproxyfen, an insectgrowth regulator (IGR) on the larvae of a dengue vector, Ae. aegypti. The study site was the surroundingarea of the Medical Entomology Unit, Institute for Medical Research (IMR), Kuala Lumpur (N03°10.167’,E101°41.919’). Pyriproxyfen-controlled release blocks with dosages of 10% w/w and 20% w/w wereused to treat a set of earthen jars placed outdoors. Untreated jars were also set up as controls. Fifty laboratory-bred 2nd instar larvae were introduced ...
