Figure 8

Impact of insecticides on mosquito behaviour around and insides houses. The graph illustrates the effect of DDT, Transfluthrin and Metofluthrin coils on the house entry and behaviour of 100 female An. arabiensis and An. gambiae s.s. mosquitoes are approaching the house. Assumptions made included the fact that deterrence was the first mode of action followed by irritancy, feeding inhibition, toxicity and fecundity. The data used was derived from field experiments for deterrence and semi-field system experiments for irritancy, feeding inhibition, toxicity and fecundity.
