Insecticide resistance of Anopheles gambiae (s.l.) against public health insecticides is increasingly
reported in Ghana and need to be closely monitored. This study investigated the intensity of insecticide resistance of
An. gambiae (s.l.) found in a vegetable growing area in Accra, Ghana, where insecticides, herbicides and fertilizers are
massively used for plant protection. The bioefcacy of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) currently distributed in the
country was also assessed to delimitate the impact of the insecticide resistance intensity on the efectiveness of those
Three- to five-day-old adult mosquitoes that emerged from collected larvae from Opeibea, Accra (Ghana),
were assayed using CDC bottle and WHO tube intensity assays against diferent insecticides.
Anopheles gambiae (s.l.) from Opeibea were resistant to all the insecticides tested with very low mortality
observed against organochlorine, carbamates and pyrethroid insecticides using WHO susceptibility tests at diag‑
nostic doses during three consecutive years of monitoring

WHO susceptibility tests using the diagnostic doses described the susceptibility status of the mosquito
colony while CDC bottle and WHO tube intensity assays showed varying degrees of resistance intensity
