Abstract: The threat of mosquito-borne diseases has increased, which makes mosquito control a key concern worldwide. Aedes aegypti control is now more important than ever due to the outbreaks of Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya. Furthermore, the excessive use of synthetic insecticides in mosquito control operations has led to significant levels of insecticide resistance, which has negatively impacted both human health and the environment. This research was intended to assess Ae. Aegypti susceptibility to the two different kinds of adulticides because dengue has grown prevalent in the Rajasthan. According to the CDC procedure, adult bioassays were carried out using lambda-cyhalothrin, Malathion, permethrin, deltamethrin and observed complete mortality to all insecticides from the Jaipur district of Rajasthan. Thus, at CDC recommended diagnostic doses, the current findings show 100% susceptibility to deltamethrin, permethrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, and Malathion. As a result, additional research should be planned to examine the regional diagnostic concentrations for several insecticides for the state of Rajasthan.
