Summary of "Effect of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis Sugar Patches on Insecticide Resistant Anopheles gambiae s.l. Adults."

Large distribution of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) contributed to a significant decrease in malarial mortality. Unfortunately, large insecticide resistance in malaria vectors occurred and is a threat to the future use of these control approaches. The purpose of this study was to explore a new approach for vector control. Patches containing Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) solubilized Cry toxins mixed with sugar were developed and tested in the laboratory with pyrethroid-resistant Anopheles gambiae s.l. using tunnel tests.
