Percentage Knockdown (KD) will be recorded after 60 minutes and maintained for 24hrs post-exposure on 6 % glucose solution, after which mortality will be recorded. The data collected on both treatment and control will be analyzed using ANOVA. Chi-square of SAS version 9.2 will be used to compare the Mosquito’s age in different treatments and control. The results of this study, firstly, will act as an indicator whether there is a need to establish an efficient resistance management strategy aimed at preventing and delaying the development of resistance to insecticides, ensuring sufficient level of mosquito control in the case of resistivity thus reducing cases of deaths due to malaria. Secondly, it will provide the need for regular surveillance, so that in the case of late detection, evidence of control failure for justification of replacement of the insecticide can be recommended.
