ADAPCO’s New Resistance Resource Center

At ADAPCO’s Resistance Resource Center, we provide regional resources, resistance testing guidelines, and operational recommendations. Our mission is to offer the most up-to-date information to help you with resistance management.

Resistance to various insecticide classes has been well documented and has increased over time. Due to the limited chemistries available to mosquito control professionals, resistance is not an issue that can be taken lightly. The best way to prevent and combat resistance from developing in your local mosquito populations, is to be proactive rather than reactive.

Combatting Mosquito Insecticide Resistance – Rotation and Integrated Mosquito Management

The topic of insecticide resistance has received increasing amounts of attention within the operational mosquito control industry. As a result, assays are being conducted in many areas to identify and monitor resistance so that it can be swiftly and efficaciously addressed.

We have examples of documentation of resistance in all regions of the US in multiple species. These studies indicate that there is resistance to multiple active ingredients!

The good news is it is not too late to act. Populations classified as ‘susceptible’ and ‘developing resistance’ are still present and now is the time to develop and implement resistance management strategies.

Benefits of Resistance Management

  1. Rotating insecticides will delay the onset of insecticide resistance and preserve the effectiveness of your adulticides.
  2. This strategy does not require mid-season recalibration.
  3. Applicators can keep their original routes when the products are rotated mid-season.
  4. Emphasizing all parts of integrated mosquito management ensures your program achieves the highest levels of control while preserving product chemistries.
