Excerpt
1.INTRODUCTION MALATHION AS AN INSECTICIDE The effects of malathion, S- [I ,2-di-(ethoxycarbonyl) ethyl] 0,O-dimethyl phosphorodithioate, as a general insecticide have been studied in detail and malathion has been widely used since its introduction in 1954. Studies have also been made of its effects against mosquitos; some of these studies having particular relevance to malaria are the following: field observations in a small number of houses in Mississippi, USA (Mathis & Schoof, 1958) and in Morelos, Mexico (Barrera, 1959), small field trials in El Salvador (Schoof et al., 1961) and Greece (Rao et al., unpublished data, 1960); a village-scale trial in Nigeria (Elliott & Barnes, 1963), comparative laboratory studies of malathion and other insecticides on various organic and inorganic surfaces (Hadaway & Barlow, 1963a, 1963b; Mathis & Schoof, 1963) and experimental studies in huts at Arusha, Tanzania (Smith & Hocking, 1962) and cattlesheds at Jogjakarta, Indonesia (Soerono et al., 1965). More recently, malathion has been used alone or in conjunction with larvicides or drugs in limited field trials in Nicaragua, Honduras and Iran with varied results (WHO unpublished reports).
