Efficacy of Australian quarantine procedures against the mosquito Aedes aegypti
Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 17 (2), 114-117
Abstract: Methods employed by Australian quarantine officers to control Aedes mosquitoes in containers were tested against all stages of Aedes aegypti. Saltwater emersion killed all larvae but not pupae or eggs that were briefly exposed. Swimming pool chlorine, methyl bromide fumigation, and permethrin (2% active ingredient) spray provided 100% mortality of eggs, larvae, and pupae. Aerosol sprays incorporating synthetic pyrethrins are practical and also provide effective control of adults.
