Abstract

Cynoff25ULV® (cypermethrin 25 g/l) and Solfac UL015® (cyfluthrinl .5% w/v) were evaluated against the sentinel sugar-fed adults and 4th-instar larvae of Aedes aegypti in a housing estate endemic of dengue in Malaysia. The impact of both pyrethroids on field populations of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti larvae was monitored weekly using bottle containers. Both Cynoff 25ULV® and Solfac UL015® showed adulticidal effects and larvicidal effects. This field trial using Cynoff 25ULV® against dengue vectors showed its potential for use in dengue vector control programs.
