Technical Abstract: Insecticides were assessed in the field for protectant suitability on perimeter vegetation and fabric enclosures. CO2-generating traps were used as surrogate hosts for dense populations of Anopheles quadrimaculatus, Psorophora columbiae and Culex spp. The most effective insecticide was combined with spatial repellents to enhance the level of protecdtion. The study was funded by DWFP.
