Operational note indoor low-volume spray trials: handheld equipment evaluation.

Author information

Navy Disease Vector Ecology and Control Center, Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, FL 32212-0043, USA.


Four handheld aerosol-mist generators and 1 thermal fog generator were evaluated initially for their ability to deliver low flow rates (< or = 5 ml/min) of resmethrin insecticide. Two generators, the London Fog Eliminator and Clarke Pl, were then selected from that group to conduct a treatment of a block of 16 residences (4 x 4 grid) vs. direct treatment of individual residences to determine the most efficacious method of treating a group of small dwellings or a village. Data are presented on droplet density, volume median diameter, and mortality of caged mosquitoes treated with the P1 and Eliminator in residences treated as a group; and mortality for caged Aedes aegypti L. in residences treated individually with the P1 at various flow control settings and spray-on times.
