Residual Effects Of Insecticide-based Malaria Control Interventions On Malaria Vectors And The Status Of Insecticide Resistance In Western Kenya

Malaria is a human disease caused by a sporozoan from the genus Plasmodium, transmitted by a bite of Anopheles mosquitoes. Insecticides remain the major tool for control of malaria vectors in Kenya and therefore the potential of such programs to be compromised by the reported insecticide resistance is a major concern. Studies in western Kenya have reported reemergence of morbidity and malaria attributed child mortality which has been linked to reported spread of insecticide resistance in anophiline mosquitoes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the residual effect of insecticides used for indoor residual spraying and impregnated on long lasting insecticide nets, and also determine the status of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors from western Kenya. Wall bioassays were performed on mud slabs and filter papers sprayed with lambdacyhalothrin and deltamethrin using mosquitoes collected from Ahero, Kisian, Chulaimbo, Emutete, Emakakha, Iguhu and Kabula. Net bioassays were performed on long lasting insecticide nets (LLINs) collected from the field using wild caught mosquitoes from Emutete and Kabula. Kisumu strain, a susceptible reference strain was used as a control. Chemical analysis of the netting material was performed using gas chromatography.
