Abstract

Among the characteristics of spinosad that are worth noting is its environmentally favorable toxicity profile. It is a compound of biological origin, whose insecticide action is highly effective against a great number of insects. Laboratory larval bioassays of spinosad on Aedes aegypti, Culex quinquefasciatus, and Anopheles gambiae (specimens that were either susceptible or resistant to pyrethroids, carbamates, and organ-ophosphates) showed that this product had a lethal action (mortality after 24 h of exposure) regardless of the original status, susceptible or resistant, of the mosquito larvae.
