Abstract:

Tests conducted in Thailand by Lofgren et al. 1967 in 1965 showed that Abate registered trademark 0,0-dimethyl phosphorothioate 0,0-diester with 4,4 thiodiphenol and Dursban registered trademark 0,0-diethyl 0-3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridyl phosphorothioate were effective in controlling breeding of Aedes aegypti L. in concrete water storage jars. This paper describes further testing in 1965 and 1966 with both compounds and compares the effectiveness of various formulations of Abate.
