Abstract

Pyrethroid resistance in vectors could limit the efficacy of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs)
because all LLINs are currently treated with pyrethroids. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and
wash resistance of PermaNet® 3.0 compared to PermaNet® 2.0 in an area of high pyrethroid in Côte d’Ivoire. PermaNet® 3.0 is impregnated with deltamethrin at 85 mg/m2 on the sides of the net and with deltamethrin and piperonyl butoxide on the roof. PermaNet® 2.0 is impregnated with deltamethrin at 55 mg/m2 across the entire net.
