Control of Pyrethroid-Resistant Chagas Disease Vectors with Entomopathogenic Fungi


cuticle and to utilize them as fuel and for incorporation into cellular components. Field assays performed in rural village houses infested with pyrethroid-resistant insects showed 52.4% bug mortality. Using available mathematical models, we predicted that further fungal applications could eventually halt infection transmission.This low cost, low tech, ecologically friendly methodology could help in controlling the spread of pyrethroid-resistant bugs
