Abstract

Verandah trap huts in a Tanzanian village were used to assess the effectiveness of impregnated bednets and curtains in preventing hut entryand feeding by, and in killing of Anopheles gambiae and An. funestus. Permethrin, deltamethrin, lambdacyhalothrin and pyrethrum were used for impregnation of damaged or undamaged bednets, sisal eaves curtains or bed curtains made of polypropylene fibre. The performance of the three synthetic pyrethroids did not differ statistically significantly, except that on a damaged net permethrin was better at preventing feeding. Sisal eaves curtains deterred mosquitoes from hut entry but did not kill those that had entered. In assessing damaged nets and curtains it must be recognised that anything less than the best vector control may have no appreciable impact on holoendemic malaria.
