Malaria Mosquito Resistance to Agricultural Insecticides: Risk Area Mapping in Thailand.


Overgaard, Hans. 2006. Malaria mosquito resistance to agricultural insecticides: risk area mapping in Thailand. Colombo, Sri Lanka: International Water Management Institute (IWMI) 62p. (IWMI Research Report 103) [doi: 10.3910/2009.103]



The purpose of this study was to identify risk areas in Thailand where insecticide resistance in malaria mosquitoes might develop as a consequence of crop protection activities in agriculture. The study provides guidelines on how to delineate risk areas. A review of insecticide resistance in disease vectors and the potential role of agricultural insecticides is presented.
