ABSTRACT: A laboratory evaluation of three slow-release formulations (SRFs) of spinosad tablets, sumilarv granules and du-dim tablets was carried out in 20 liters plastic containers. The tested formulations were applied according to recommended doses to evaluate their efficacy and longevity against Ae. aegypti. The results revealed that the tested SRFs achieved complete inhibition of adult stages emergence of Ae. aegypti in the first four weeks and gave continuous effective with 50-100% for 98, 86 and 78 days post -treatment by using spinosad tablets, sumilarv granules and du-dim tablets respectively. The highest larval mortality was observed for spinosad followed by sumilarv and du-dim, it gave 1.3 folds than sumilarv and 1.1 folds with du-dium, whereas sumilarv and du-dium were more effective on pupal mortality than spinosad. On the other hand, morphological abnormalities were observed in larval and pupal stages of Ae. aegypti as delayed effects by tested formulations. This study highlighted that these SRFs could be used as potential larvicidal compounds in mosquito control programs as a single treatment and provide satisfactory results and continuous control against the dengue vector Ae. aegypti for  several weeks.
