The countries affected by malaria have adopted new vector control strategies focused primarily on the use of insecticide-treated nets and indoor residual spraying. The commune of Aguégués was chosen to evaluate the impact of the use of Baygon® in malaria transmission. Entomological, clinical and parasitological parameters are studied. The effect of Baygon® is about 4 to 5 hours in the rooms sprayed. The results show that there is no significant difference regarding the entomological and parasitological parameters in the village treated with Baygon® and the village without nets. Baygon® has an important role in reducing the mosquito population. Baygon® has a knock-down and irritant effect on mosquitos. But the effect of this power is short because after 1 am mosquitoes begin to enter the sprayed rooms. The use of Baygon® must be accompanied by the long lasting impregnated mosquito nets.
