Efficacy of an aerosol surface spray against container-breeding Aedes
Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association 17 (2), 147-149
Abstract: The effectiveness of a residual insect surface spray against container-breeding mosquitoes was tested in Cairns, Australia. A formulation containing imiprothrin and cypermethrin (Mortein® Plus Cockroach Lure 'n' Kill High Performance Surface Spray) was selected based on the label claim to "kill continuously for up to 6 months." A 1-sec spray was applied to the water and interior surface of partially flooded tires and terra-cotta pots. Treatments were paired with a control and replicated at 2 sites within 3 residential properties for a total of 6 replicates. All mosquito larvae were removed and counted weekly, and a representative sample was identified in the laboratory. Complete control of Aedes species was achieved for 4 and 5 months in all tires and pots, respectively.
