Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Some effects of mixtures of insecticides on mosquitos were explored by E l l i o t t (1960), using larvae of Culex fatigans, and it was concluded that both economically and biologically there may be a case for the employment of mixtures in malaria eradication. It was pointed out in the paper, and emphasized editorially, that the results of larval reactions cannot give'd-irect information as to the possible u t i l i t y of mixtures in adult control, since the larval t e s t s are based on continuous exposure, while in adult t e s t s short exposures are commonly used, and in the f i e l d i r r i t a b i l i t y to such a chemical as DDT might well shorten the exposure time to another chemical associated with it. It may be added that most t e s t s of adult reactions to mixtures, such as those described by Macdonald (1959), elso leave out of account the factor of i r r i t a b i l i t y , since the exposures are carried out a t a fixed time interval.
