There are two methods of performing bioassays. One method is designed
to work on mosquito larvae while the other is for mature adult mosquitos.
Both require their own separate materials and preparations.
self-paced practice questions follow each section
Bottle Bioassay (for adult samples)
to complete this module it will take approximately 1.5 hours.
Larval Bioassay (for larval samples)
to complete this module it will take approximately 1.2 hours.
this is needed in order to know the concentrations of insecticide that
should be used in the bioassays. Please review the bioassay directions
Interpretation of Results
Learn how to plot and analyze the outcomes of the bioassays in order
to create reports of experiments.
Included in each section above are checklists
of materials needed from commercial suppliers (they
can also be found in the resources section).
