Novel Compounds for Countering Insecticide Resistance and Improving the Control of Plague Flea Vectors

Project Summary

We envision development of low cost rodent contamination device (RCD), where rodents would visit, get contaminated with control agents and feed on bait with ivermectin; and vehicle those agents to microhabitats. As such, we will ensure routine and targeted control, which in turn will circumvent delayed control and high costs. We will aim to develop low-cost RCD which could be used to auto-disseminate novel compounds and or chemical insecticides to rodent microhabitats.
