Insecticide susceptibility of Anopheles albimanus and An. vestitipennis in Dajabon Province, Dominican Republic, was investigated. Only 74.3% of An. albimanus exposed to 4% DDT for 1 h died. The mortality in this species following exposure for 1 h to 0.25% permethrin was also 74.3%. However, this species was susceptible to malathion, fenitrothion and propoxur. The mortality obtained following exposure of An. vestitipennis to 4% DDT and 0.1% propoxur, both for 1 h, was 71% and 100%, respectively. However, the number of specimens exposed to propoxur was small.
