    Abstract

    The efficacy of three formulations of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis was studied against Aedes albopictus in discarded tires. The formulations were: Vectobac G (corn cob formulation), Vectobac 12AS (aqueous suspension), and Bactimos WP (wettable powder formulation). Both Vectobac G and Vectobac 12AS were effective for 24 hr with more than 80% mortality. Both Vectobac formulations were significantly more effective than Bactimos WP for 24 hr after treatment (P<0.0005). A week after treatment, Vectobac 12AS was significantly different than Bactimos WP (P<0.05). However, Vectobac G did not differ significantly from Bactimos WP (P>0.05); two weeks after spraying there was no significant difference among the various formulations (P>0.05).
