Larvicides based on , (formerly ), and insect growth regulators such as methoprene, and a few others are the most commonly used mosquito control products in the United States and elsewhere because of their relative specificity and high effectiveness against target organisms, safety to nontarget species, and compatibility with the environment. Using standard laboratory bioassay, we have evaluated the loss of larvicidal activities of various formulations after being exposed to different storage and handling temperatures. Transportation of products under outdoor conditions for an extended period of time caused more activity loss compared with other conditions. Results are discussed based on their active ingredients as well as physico-chemical properties of the formulations reported. Recommendations are made for proper inventory control, storage, and handling of larvicides to minimize loss of larvicidal activity.

During June through September 2018, the North Shore Mosquito Abatement District evaluated a quality control protocol for larvicide-treated catch basins that allowed for comparisons of larvicides with ...
Obtaining reliable and reproducible high quality data in multicenter clinical research settings requires design of optimal standard operating procedures. While the need for standardization in sample p...
Water quality is a factor that is likely to interact with the activity of ()-based mosquito larvicides. High rates of adsorption to dense particulate matter and toxin degradation in water may be expe...
The chemical control of the mosquito is a great challenge worldwide, since several populations of this species are already resistant to traditional insecticides, such as temephos. In Brazil, alternat...
Wolbachia bacteria are now being introduced into Aedes aegypti mosquito populations for dengue control. When Wolbachia infections are at a high frequency, they influence the local transmission of deng...
Lipid Storage Diseases (LSD) is a group of metabolic diseases that are manifested by exercise intolerance or muscle weakness, sometimes accompanied by systemic findings, which develop in s...
The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate the use of (1) 'malaria prevalence', (2) 'malaria incidence' and (3) 'malaria mortality' as a measure of malaria transmission in The Gambia, ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of AGS-v PLUS, a universal mosquito-borne disease and mosquito control vaccine, in healthy volunteers.
Isolated minority communities in China use traditional plant-based methods of mosquito control. This study is evaluating 4 plants used in this way by monitoring mosquitoes entering houses...
This is a study of the genetics of malaria transmission by the mosquito vector in Africa, Anopheles gambiae. The study focuses on the mosquito vector, not the human subjects infected with ...
Information or data used to ensure the safe handling and disposal of substances in the workplace. Such information includes physical properties (i.e. melting, boiling, flashing points), as well as data on toxicity, health effects, reactivity, storage, disposal, first-aid, protective equipment, and spill-handling procedures.
Any aspect of the operations in the preparation, transport, storage, packaging, wrapping, exposure for sale, service, or delivery of food.
Persons with loss of vision such that there is an impact on activities of daily living.
An indication of the contribution of a food to the nutrient content of the diet. This value depends on the quantity of a food which is digested and absorbed and the amounts of the essential nutrients (protein, fat, carbohydrate, minerals, vitamins) which it contains. This value can be affected by soil and growing conditions, handling and storage, and processing.
Substances which, upon release into the atmosphere, water, or soil, or which, in direct contact with the skin, eyes, or mucous membranes, or as additives to food, cause health risks to humans or animals through absorption, inhalation, or ingestion. The concept includes safe handling, transportation, and storage of these substances.
