Abstract Synthetic pyrethroids utilized in household insecticide formulations were assessed for their application as fogging concentrates against laboratory bred Culex quinquefasciatus. EC formulations of synthetic pyrethroids namely- d-allethrin, d-trans allethrin, Permethrin and Prallethrin were evaluated for their efficacy at targeted dosages in Peet Grady chamber in comparison to Pyrethrum extract. The study reveals that synthetic pyrethroids especially 2 % w/w Permethrin and 2 % w/w Prallethrin EC formulation at target dosages hold great promise as space spray (fogging concentrate) application for control of vector mosquitoes in urban areas.
