LARVAL MOSQUITO RESISTANCE TESTING VIDEOS

Learn more about resistance testing for larval mosquitoes in our PacVec overview video. The video discusses the rationale for monitoring resistance in mosquitoes, an overview of dose responses and how the dose response changes as resistance to larvicides evolves in a mosquito population, the different types of larval mosquito control agents, the supplies needed for carrying out bioassays, bioassay set-up and making stock solutions of control agents, and interpreting the bioassay results.
