Table 1 Bioassay results for Aedes aegypti, including samples collected in Madang and Port Moresby. Values are given as proportions and 95% CI [35]

From: Insecticide resistance status of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes in Papua New Guinea

Insecticide, location Mean knockdown after 60 min (95% CI) Mean mortality after 24 h (95% CI)
0.05% deltamethrin, Madang (n = 106) 0.29 (0.21–0.39) 0.33 (0.25–0.42)
0.05% deltamethrin, Port Moresby (n = 46) 0.13 (0.06–0.26) 0.07 (0.02–0.18)
0.05% lambda-cyhalothrin, Madang (n = 37) 0.11 (0.04–0.25) 0.32 (0.20–0.49)
0.1% bendiocarb, Madang (n = 18)a 0.89 (0.66–0.98) 0.89 (0.66–0.98)
4% DDT, Madang (n = 13)a 0 (0–0.27) 0 (0–0.27)
5% malathion, Madang (n = 33) 1.00 (0.88–1.00) 1.00 (0.88–1.00)
  1. aThe numbers of Ae. aegypti mosquitoes tested against Bendiocarb (n = 18) and DDT (n = 13) in Madang are too low to be statistically robust and these results are included for reason of completeness
  2. Abbreviations: n, number of mosquitoes; CI, confidence interval
