Cypermethrin, Deltamethrin, B. microplus, Ectopar


Resistance status of synthetic pyrethroid (cypermethrin and deltamethrin) has done with farm and field strains of B. microplus at different-different concentration. The results revealed that cypermethrin is very effective than deltamethrin against village strain.
