Bio-efficacy Study for Household Insecticides Product

In Malaysia, comparative studies or Bio-efficacy Study using Malaysian Standard or other internationality accepted protocols for household insecticide products are required for pesticide registration (GP3/1993 Guidelines on Efficacy Data Requirement).

A rapid growth in repellent product demand with substantial growth rates over the last few years is also observed. It is estimated that the market will grow significantly in the forecasted period of 2020 to 2027.

In Mérieux, we conduct bio-efficacy study for household insecticide and repellent products to assess their efficiency and the minimum dose required to achieve control of insects in infected areas.

Insect species commonly found in Malaysia or South East Asia region are:

  • Mosquitoes – Aedes aegypti, Culex mosquito, Anopheles mosquito
  • Cockroaches – Blattella germanica, Periplaneta americana
  • Ant – Blackhouse ant, fire ant, pharoah ant

Testing protocol or any other internationality acceptable protocols:

Above target, species can be tested against household insecticide or repellent products using the following protocol or any other internationality acceptable protocols, e.g FAO guidelines as below:

  • MS 1911-Part 1: Glass Chamber Method for Household Insecticide Products
  • MS 1911-Part 2: Peet Grady Chamber Method for Household Insecticide Products
  • MS 1911-Part 3: Cylinder Method for Household Insecticide Products
  • MS 1911-Part 4: Plaque Method for Household Insecticide Products
  • MS 23: Glass Chamber method for testing mosquito coils
  • MS 1497: Bioefficacy Evaluation for Personal Mosquito Repellent
  • MS 1044: Bioefficacy Evaluation for Mosquito Vaporizing Mats
  • MS 1326: Bioefficacy Evaluation for Cockroaches Baits
  • MS 1985: Bioefficacy Evaluation for Ant Baits
