Rapid Test Method
The commonest resistance mechanisms of insect to synthetic chemicals is elevated level of non-specific esterases, altered acetylcholinesterase an increased level of oxidase, All these mechanisms have been found in many mosquitoes, flies and cockroaches. Hence, the detection and determination of these enzymes can be utilised to estimate the degree of resistance.

The test protocol is greatly simplified to cater for both laboratory and field testing with minimal use of equipment.
