Autor(es): Bibbs Christopher S; Xue Rui-De

Resumo: The OFF! Clip-on mosquito-repellent device was tested outdoors against Aedes aegypti (L.). A single treatment device was used against batches of caged adult, nonblood fed Ae. aegypti at multiple locations 0.3 m from treatment center. Another set of cages was stationed 0.6 m from treatment. A final set of cages was placed 0.9 m away. Trials ran for durations of 5, 15, 30, and 60 min. Initial knockdown and mortality after 24 h was recorded. The devices had effective knockdown and mortality. This was not sustained at distances greater than 0.3 m from the device.
