Abstract : Abstract:Sixty used Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs) from six malaria endemic areas of States and Regions of Myanmar were assessed for their bio-efficacy against Anopheles mosquitoes. Total ten nets were collected from the randomly selected household of each area. Insecticide susceptibility and bio-efficacy test were done according to WHO testing method. Results revealed that a total of 4470 mosquitoes of 12 Anopheles species including main vector and secondary vectors were collected in high density in Beelin, Taungoo, Pyin Oo Lwin, Kamamaung and Hpa-an. All collected mosquitoes were found susceptible to insecticides as recommended by the WHO. Bio-efficacy of PermaNet 2.0, DAWA TANA, Yorkool, BASF, Net protect and Yahe LLINs nets were 12(100%), 11/12(91.67%), 4(100%), 8(100%), 5(100%) and 19(100%) respectively. The DAWA TANA net had 20% sensitivity after repetitive washing. The sensitivity of LLINs nets was higher for all selected areas of States and Regions in Myanmar. The study suggested that there is need to distribute a large number of effective LLINs nets in malaria endemic areas as well as the replacement of expired, less effective and very old LLINs nets with a new one is also necessary. LLINs nets are very effective Anopheles mosquitoes control tools and it can reduce the human-vector contact effectively. Moreover, research on bio-efficacy evaluations of the LLINs nets is required regularly to maintain and control the transmission of malaria through Anopheles mosquitoes.
