VECTRONTM T500 will support the rotation of insecticides in line with best practice insecticide resistance management, which is critical to preserve the long-term efficacy of vector control tools. VECTRONTM T500 has outstanding efficacy against malaria vector mosquitoes including strains and populations resistant to pyrethroids and some other insecticides. It works on a variety of types of wall surfaces, including mud, and shows long residual efficacy.
VECTRONTM T500 is non-repellent, odorless and stainless formulation with low mammalian acute toxicity, and is supplied in easy-to-handle 50g aluminum sachets.
Mitsui Chemicals Agro will launch VECTRONTM T500 in sub-Saharan African countries from 2023 in line with locally required conditions of use.

Our mission is to provide solutions to health challenges through the development and deployment of innovative, high-quality products. We are committed to malaria eradication and are excited about the launch of VECTRONTM T500. We appreciate the support of all our stakeholders and partners in reaching this important milestone.”
