    Abstract

    The pyrethroids alphacypennethrin and permethrin were compared for residual activity against the dengue vector Aedes albopictus (Skuse) in wooden huts in Kuala Lumpur. Two huts were individually sprayed inside with one of the pyrethroids and the third hut served as a control. At an applied concentration of 0.01 g a.i./m2, both pyrethroids were equally effective in causing more than 80% mortality of Ae. albopictus one week after spraying. The Ae. albopictus exposed to a higher concentration of 0.05 g a.i./m2 on alphacypermethrin treated walls showed 100% mortality one week post-spraying that declined to 91.3% mortality eight weeks post-spraying. In contrast, the permethrin-treated walls caused 87.5% mortality one week after spraying and 75% mortality eight weeks after spraying. Thus, alphacypermethrin showed a greater residual efficacy than permethrin in controlling the dengue vector.
