Table 1 Profile of susceptibility to temephos for the Aedes aegypti laboratory strains and field population

From: Fitness cost in field and laboratory Aedes aegypti populations associated with resistance to the insecticide temephos

Population LC95 a mg/L [CI95] RR95 b Classification
Rockefellerc 0.011 [0.009 - 0.015] 1.0 Susceptible

  1. aLC95 = 95 % lethal concentration of temephos; CI = confidence interval
  2. bRR95 = resistance ratio to the lethal concentration of 95 %. Susceptible (RR < 3), low resistance (3 ≤ RR ≤ 5), moderate resistance (5 < RR ≤ 10) and high resistance (RR > 10)
