In Arunachal Pradesh, Simulium (mostly S. himalayense, but also S. barraudi, S. kapuri, S. praelargum and S. striatum) larvae were eliminated in a river up to 30 km with 0.1 p.p.m. Abate (temephos) for 30 min exposure. Teknar (Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis) at 10 p.p.m. for 10 min exposure resulted in 98.4% and 87.9% reductions up to 20 m in two sections of a small stream. Simulium breeding was eliminated in a river up to 30 km with 0.1 ppm Abate (temephos) for 30 min exposure. Teknar (Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis) at 10 ppm for 10 min exposure resulted in 98.4% and 87.9% reduction up to 20 m in 2 sections of a small stream.AS.
