Some control strategies employed by eradication programmes included community-level health education, setting up national surveillance programs, giving away cloth filters, use of temephos
(cyclopsicide), early case detection and case containment (Hopkins et al.

medinensis larvae); 3) treating potentially contaminated surface water with the organophosphate larvicide temephos
(Abate) to kill the copepods; and 4) providing safe drinking water from bore-hole or protected hand-dug wells (6).
The conference was told that two thousand kilogram of insecticide deltametherine five percent and temephos
one percent have been supplied to Rawalpindi and Lahore districts while the other three high risk districts are provided with five hundred kilogram insecticides each.
Antilarval measures were undertaken by using Temephos
50% EC (25 ml and 500 linear meters respectively), and thermal fogging with portable fog generator was carried out using malathion 95% solution (diluted with kerosene oil at 1:19 ratio) for three consecutive days.
According to the Epidemiological Surveillance bulletin from the Municipality and Department of Public Health of the Rio Grande do Norte State, the organophosphate Temephos
was used in large scale during the last decade.
The impetus for this program was recognition of the shortcomings of current dengue control efforts, which rely heavily upon massive use of the organophosphate pesticide temephos
(Abate) in household water containers where the mosquito vectors breed.

Studies have also shown higher FA in the mosquitoes treated with the organophosphate insecticide temephos
compared with control insects (Mpho et al.
