An independent state in the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies, north of Venezuela, comprising the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Its capital is Port of Spain. Both islands were discovered by Columbus in 1498. The Spanish, English, Dutch, and French figure in their history over four centuries. Trinidad and Tobago united in 1898 and were made part of the British colony of Trinidad and Tobago in 1899. The colony became an independent state in 1962. Trinidad was so named by Columbus either because he arrived on Trinity Sunday or because three mountain peaks suggested the Holy Trinity. Tobago was given the name by Columbus from the Haitian tambaku, pipe, from the natives' habit of smoking tobacco leaves.

Can vector control play a useful supplementary role against bancroftian filariasis? (1/1373)

A single campaign of mass treatment for bancroftian filariasis with diethylcarbamazine (DEC) in Makunduchi, a town in Zanzibar, United Republic of Tanzania, combined with elimination of mosquito breeding in pit latrines with polystyrene beads was followed by a progressive decline over a 5-year period in the microfilarial rate from 49% to 3%. Evidence that vector control had contributed to this long-term decline was obtained by comparison with another town, Moga, where a DEC campaign was used without vector control and where resurgence of microfilariae could be observed 3-6 years after the campaign. In Zanzibar town, treatment of 3844 wet pit latrines and cesspits with polystyrene beads reduced the adult mosquito population in houses by about 65%. Supplementary treatment of open drains and marshes with Bacillus sphaericus produced little or no additional reduction compared to a sector of the town where only pit treatment with polystyrene was carried out. The cost and effort of achieving the 65% reduction in mosquito population could hardly be justified for its impact on filariasis alone, but its noticeable impact on biting nuisance might help to gain community support for an integrated programme.  (+info)

Monitoring community response to malaria control using insecticide-impregnated bed nets, curtains and residual spray at Nsukka, Nigeria. (2/1373)

A project testing the efficacy of insecticide (permethrin)-impregnated bed nets, compared with impregnated door and window curtains, residual house spraying, and a control group was implemented in 12 village clusters in the Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria, using epidemiologic and entomologic indicators. The appropriate materials and services were given free to all families. During the first year of study, three monitoring exercises were carried out in a random selection of homes where children under 5 years of age resided. Information was collected on perceived effectiveness of the interventions, condition of nets and curtains, reasons for not sleeping under nets, and recall of steps required in caring for nets and curtains. Bed nets were perceived as more effective in reducing mosquito bites compared with the two other interventions. At the last monitoring period, which occurred a few weeks before a re-impregnation exercise, respondents also perceived bed nets to be most effective in preventing malaria. These findings coincided with epidemiologic evidence. Curtains, especially those at doors, were more likely to be torn and dirty than bed nets. Although holes would not reduce the effectiveness of the insecticide, they could reduce the 'beauty' of the curtains, a perceived benefit that initially attracted villagers to both curtains and nets. Bed net owners reported significantly less frequent use of other mosquito control measures in their homes than did members of the other groups. Finally, bed net users demonstrated increased knowledge of use and care steps than did those with curtains. These findings suggested a high level of social acceptability of bed nets, and point to the need to test their acceptability further under conditions where people would pay for nets and communities would manage distribution and re-impregnation systems.  (+info)

Insecticide-treated nets and treatment service: a trial using public and private sector channels in rural United Republic of Tanzania. (3/1373)

The Rotary Net Initiative, implemented in Kilombero District, southern United Republic of Tanzania, allowed us to explore different sales channels for the distribution of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) and the insecticide treatment service in a rural area of very high malaria transmission. Several types of ITNs were promoted and sold through different channels in the public and private sector, i.e. hospital pharmacy, mother and child health (MCH) clinic, net committee, village health workers and retail shops. The ITNs were sold for US$ 5.0-9.2, with profit margins of 9-16%. Net treatment cost US$ 0.33, with commission fees of 75%. Net transport and treatment were partially subsidized. Some outlets established their own fund by ITN sales. Sales of nets and treatments were seasonal, and certain net types were preferred. Demand for insecticide treatment was generally low. Changes in net coverage were assessed in two villages. A range of outlet features were compared qualitatively. Our experience supports suggestions that ITN technology should be delivered through MCH care services and demonstrates that specific promotion and innovation are necessary to achieve substantial net treatment levels. A large-scale ITN project in the same area and other ITN studies should lead to better understanding of ITN implementation at the population level.  (+info)

Control of malaria vectors: cost analysis in a province of northern Vietnam. (4/1373)

The cost of permethrin-treated bednets (50% EC; 0.2 g/m2, 2 rounds per year) was compared to the cost of residual spraying with lambdacyhalothrin 10% WP (0.03 g/m2, once yearly) in Hoa Binh, a mountainous province in northern Vietnam. Calculations of the amounts of insecticides needed were based on national guidelines, on data from a cross-sectional survey and on district activity reports. The actual cost of insecticide required per person per year was lower for impregnation (US$ 0.26) than for spraying (US$ 0.36), but the difference was smaller than expected. The total cost for impregnated bednets per person per year amounted to US$ 0.90 compared to USS 0.47 for spraying. The determining factor was the cost of the net, amounting to US$ 0.58 per person per year, assuming a 5-year life of the net. Other material (excluding nets), labour and transport combined, accounted for only 17% of the impregnation cost and 23% of spraying expenses. However, for the National Malaria Control Programme of Vietnam, the cost per person per year for impregnated bednets amounted to US$ 0.32 only, because the vast majority of nets are bought by the population. For spraying, the programme had to bear the entire cost.  (+info)

A new strategy for treating nets. Part 1: formulation and dosage. (5/1373)

The conventional dosages of pyrethroid insecticides on mosquito nets assume that nets will be retreated at 6-12 month intervals. However, dosage should be related to washing of nets; if nets are only washed once or twice a year, their dosage requirements will be different to those which are washed fortnightly. A 'low-dose, frequent-wash' retreatment system might be technically more appropriate and more affordable where nets are washed frequently, as they are in Dar es Salaam. Moreover, for use as a domestic insecticide, water-based formulations of pyrethroid are preferable to the more commonly used emulsifiable concentrates (ECs). This paper reports laboratory evaluations of three formulations (ECs, Flowable, CS) of three pyrethroids (deltamethrin, lambdacyhalothrin, permethrin). Insecticidal activity was tested using serial bioassays at a range of dosages using Anopheles gambiae. The water-based formulations were no less effective than the ECs, even at the lowest dosages. Nets treated with 3 mg/m2 and then repeatedly washed and retreated after each wash with either 3 mg/m2 or 1 mg/m2 were subjected to gas chromatography analysis. This showed that the amounts of pyrethroid in the nets accumulated rapidly over the first few wash-retreatment cycles and then remained fairly stable over subsequent cycles. These nets gave consistently high bioassay mortalities throughout the experiment, while the mortality declined rapidly after several washes with the nets that were treated at 3 mg/m2 but not retreated. Experimental huts were used to compare the effectiveness of these 2 net retreatment regimes and nets which were not retreated. All nets caused high mortality rates amongst Anopheles females, but had negligible effects on culicines; either in killing them or in preventing feeding. Therefore use of a high 'loading' dose for initial treatment with lower 'maintenance' doses for retreatment may be preferable to ensure that net users promptly perceive the benefits of the insecticide against culicines.  (+info)

A new strategy for treating nets. Part 2: users' perceptions of efficacy and washing practices and their implications for insecticide dosage. (6/1373)

The conventional way to treat a mosquito net with pyrethroid insecticide is to apply a standard dosage every 6-12 months, and to avoid washing the net until just before retreatment. In some places, nets are normally washed much more often than this, and it may then be more appropriate to apply smaller amounts of insecticide after each wash. The choice of strategy must take into account not only biological effectiveness, but also users' perceptions of this effectiveness and their net-washing habits. We used focus groups to compare users' responses to nets treated with different dosages and chemicals. One hundred current net users in urban Dares-Salaam were each given a net that had been pretreated either with permethrin (200 or 500 mg/m2), or with lambdacyhalothrin (3 or 15 mg/m2), or with water. Neither participants nor investigators knew which group had received which treatment. Focus group discussions were held after 2, 8 and 12 weeks. Participants greatly preferred treated nets. Low doses were perceived to be less effective, especially after 8 and 12 weeks. After 12 weeks most participants had washed their nets, despite requests to the contrary Dirty nets were regarded as unhealthy and socially unacceptable. Few participants experienced side-effects or expressed fears about the safety of treatment. We conclude that asking people to refrain from washing their nets is unrealistic. A 'low-dose frequent-treatment' strategy of insecticide application may be more appropriate in the long run. At first, however, low doses give perceptibly inferior protection. An initial high (loading) dose, followed by frequent lower (maintenance) dosages, might solve this problem.  (+info)

Rebound mortality and the cost-effectiveness of malaria control: potential impact of increased mortality in late childhood following the introduction of insecticide treated nets. (7/1373)

The efficacy and relative cost-effectiveness of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) for the control of malaria in children under 5 years of age have recently been demonstrated by several large-scale trials. However, it has been suggested that long-term use of ITNs in areas of high transmission could lead to mortality rebound in later childhood, which would reduce the cost-effectiveness of the intervention, and at the extreme could lead to negative overall effects. A model is presented in which the cost and disability adjusted life years (DALYs) per child aged 1-119 months were estimated for a sub-Saharan African population with and without an ITN intervention. The rebound rate, defined as the percentage increase in age-specific all-cause mortality and malaria specific-morbidity, was varied to estimate the threshold at which the intervention was no longer cost-effective. Rebound was considered over two possible age ranges: 5-9 years and 3-6 years. With mortality and morbidity reductions due to ITNs in children aged 1-59 months and rebound in the 5-9 years age class, one could be reasonably certain that the cost per DALY averted is below $150 up to a rebound rate of 39%. Up to an 84% rebound rate it is highly likely that the intervention will be DALY-averting, that is the DALYs averted by the intervetion outweigh DALYs incurred through rebound effects. These thresholds are sensitive to the age range over which reductions and rebound in morbidity and mortality occur. With reductions confined to children aged 1-35 months and rebound in the 3-6 years age class, the cost per DALY is highly likely to fall below $150 only up to a 2.5% rebound rate, and with a rate in excess of 11% one can no longer be reasonably certain that the intervention is DALY-averting. These rates apply to the whole population. If there is no rebound amongst children who did not comply with the intervention, the actual increases in morbidity and mortality required to reach these thresholds amongst compliers would be much higher. The age range over which rebound occurs is a critical determinant of the thresholds at which one can no longer be reasonably certain that ITNs remain cost-effective in the long term. Based on empirical estimates of age-specific malaria mortality in sub-Saharan Africa, it appears unlikely that this threshold rate would be reached if rebound occurs over the 5-9 years age range. By contrast, if rebound occurs over the ages of 3-6 years, the increase in mortality rates required to reach this threshold falls within the observed range of malaria-specific mortality rates for this age group. It is essential that long-term surveillance is included as part of ITN interventions, with particular attention to the age range over which rebound may occur.  (+info)

Identification of two species within the Anopheles minimus complex in northern Vietnam and their behavioural divergences. (8/1373)

Elucidating the complex taxonomic status of the major malaria vector taxa and characterising the individual species within each complex is important for understanding the complexity of the vector system in the south-east Asian region and will allow to estimate the impact of vector control measures. This applies to countries such as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam that spend about 60% of their malaria control budget on implementing vector control activities. We used isozyme electrophoresis to clarify the Anopheles minimus s.l. species composition in northern Vietnam and identify behavioural divergences of individual species. Using different collection methods, adult mosquitoes were caught at monthly intervals from June to November 1995 in four villages. An. minimus s.l. could be distinguished from closely related species, An. aconitus and An. jeyporiensis, at the Octanol dehydrogenase (Odh) enzyme locus. Significant positive Fis values gave clear evidence of nonrandom mating within the An. minimus s.l. population. The highest heterozygote deficiency was observed at locus Odh, which was diagnostic for 2 sympatric An. minimus species in Vietnam similar to the An. minimus A and C species known from Thailand. We found no evidence for restricted gene flow between monthly samples, villages, or collection methods in either of the two An. minimus species. They occurred in sympatry, but in different proportions depending on the collection site, and had dissimilar resting and biting behaviours. Thus a vector control strategy will have a nonuniform effect on the various components of this diverse vector system.  (+info)

Mosquito control manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to human health, economies, and enjoyment. Mosquito control is a vital public-health practice throughout the world and especially in the tropics because mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria. Mosquito-control operations are targeted against three different problems:. Nuisance mosquitoes (bother people around homes or in parks and recreational areas); Economically important mosquitoes (reduce real estate values, adversely affect tourism and related business interests, or negatively impact livestock or poultry production); and Public health (focusing on mosquitoes as vectors, or transmitters, of infectious disease).. Depending on the situation different strategies are employed to control mosquito populations, such as source reduction (removing mosquito breeding grounds like stagnant water), biocontrol (the use of natural enemies to manage mosquito populations), larviciding (control of larvae), and or ...

Mosquitoes are a dangerous nuisance during the summer months. They are carriers of deadly diseases and their bites cause painful sores that are prone to infection. This is why it is important to take steps to control mosquito populations around the home. However, safe mosquito control can be difficult as many repellents and pesticides contain harmful chemicals. It is therefore important to seek out other, safer means to combat the irritating blood suckers.. Remove Sources of Standing Water.. Many people mistakenly believe that any mosquitoes found around their home originated in a swamp or other large body of stagnant water. The truth is that mosquitoes are not a traveling insect.. It is believed that most mosquitoes will travel no more than a mile from the place they were born. This means that any mosquitoes in or around the home most likely originated on the property. To put an enormous dent in the mosquito population look around for and eliminate any sources of standing water. This can be ...

Source reduction is the elimination of water in which mosquitoes lay their eggs and in which the larvae develop or by containing water to eliminate areas for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Source reduction is the second most effective method for controlling mosquitoes. Methods of source reduction involve eliminating containers that hold water and filling wet areas with soil. Larviciding is the use of materials to control immature stages of mosquitoes or prevent development of larvae from becoming adult mosquitoes. Larvicides are applied to waters that contain larvae and or pupae. Larvicides are effective in low concentrations and generally do not impact other organisms in the water or habitat. Every acre that is larvicided to prevent adult mosquitoes from emerging reduces the number of acres that must be treated with spray trucks. Clackamas County Vector Control has built a program focusing on larviciding to control mosquitoes.. ...

The presence of disease-carrying mosquitoes not only threatens public health, but in many cases negatively affects tourism, agriculture and travel. Global attempts to control the prevalence of these mosquitoes have also come with hidden costs, such as releasing toxic chemical agents that reduce biodiversity, kill pollinators and natural predators, and leave residues in the environment. Over time, this has resulted in growing public demand for environmentally-friendly and residue-free methods of mosquito control. Rainy seasons provide the perfect opportunity for mosquito-borne diseases to spread. Mosquitoes use the hot, rainy seasons to breed in stagnant waters and proliferate into densely-populated regions. Lacking an established process to collect baseline data on disease epidemiology and vector dynamics, there is need to address this capacity gap.. In Nigeria, failure of mosquito control programs have been attributed to biological factors like insecticide resistance, as well as to ...

Mass distribution of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) is an intervention against malaria consisting of the free distribution of LLINs to achieve universal ownership within a population. There is strong evidence that LLINs prevent malaria.
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Insecticide-treated nets (ITN) are one of the most effective measures for preventing malaria. Mass distribution campaigns are being used to rapidly increase net coverage in at-risk populations. This study had two purposes: to evaluate the impact of a universal coverage campaign (UCC) of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) on LLIN ownership and usage, and to identify factors that may be associated with inadequate coverage. METHODS: In 2011 two cross-sectional household surveys were conducted in 50 clusters in Muleba district, north-west Tanzania. Prior to the UCC 3,246 households were surveyed and 2,499 afterwards. Data on bed net ownership and usage, demographics of household members and household characteristics including factors related to socio-economic status were gathered, using an adapted version of the standard Malaria Indicator Survey. Specific questions relating to the UCC process were asked. RESULTS: The proportion of households with at least one ITN increased ...
To serve the citizens of Maryland, the Maryland Department of Agriculture annually reviews the insecticides available for mosquito control. The recommended insecticides are selected from the list of products registered by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for mosquito control use. The Department of Agriculture bases its selection on experience and research and includes factors of risk, economy and effectiveness under Maryland conditions. The Department promotes integrated pest management of mosquitoes and advocates alternatives to insecticide application when possible. These alternatives include water management, biological control and public education.. When alternative controls are not possible to utilize or are not effective in reducing the mosquito population below a level that may cause unacceptable annoyance or constitute a public health threat, the use of insecticide is an approved option as part of an integrated pest management program.. Insecticides which control mosquito ...

Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) are commonly used together in the same households to improve malaria control despite inconsistent evidence on whether such combinations actually offer better protection than nets alone or IRS alone. Comparative tests were conducted using experimental huts fitted with LLINs, untreated nets, IRS plus untreated nets, or combinations of LLINs and IRS, in an area where Anopheles arabiensis is the predominant malaria vector species. Three LLIN types, Olyset®, PermaNet 2.0® and Icon Life® nets and three IRS treatments, pirimiphos-methyl, DDT, and lambda cyhalothrin, were used singly or in combinations. We compared, number of mosquitoes entering huts, proportion and number killed, proportions prevented from blood-feeding, time when mosquitoes exited the huts, and proportions caught exiting. The tests were done for four months in dry season and another six months in wet season, each time using new intact nets. All the net types, used
The Ministry of Public Health has announced that distribution of 91,000 insecticide treated bed and hammock nets begins early June, targeting four interior Regions well-known as hubs for malaria transmission.. The National Malaria Programme (NMP) of the Public Health Ministry will spearhead the distribution campaign of the Long-Lasting Insecticide-treated Nets (LLINs) from June 03-09 in Upper Takutu/Upper Essequibo (Region Nine) in time to beat the annual heavy rainfall which triggers flooding and other hardships including transportation.. Distribution of LLINs will then move to Region 7 (Cuyuni/Mazaruni) from June 10 -16; followed by sharing from June 17 -23 in Barima/Waini (Region 1) and concluding in Potaro/Siparuni (Region 8) in the week of June 24 -30.. The 91,000 LLINs were procured with financial backing from the Guyanese government and Global Fund. Dr Horace Cox, Director (ag) of the Vector Control Services (VCS) gave the breakdown as 57,000 slated for permanent residents and the ...

Background Malaria is an important cause of illness and death in people living in many parts of the world, especially sub-Saharan Africa. Long-lasting insecticide treated bed nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) reduce malaria transmission by targeting the adult mosquito vector and are key components of malaria control programmes. However, mosquito numbers may also be reduced by larval source management (LSM), which targets mosquito larvae as they mature in aquatic habitats. This is conducted by permanently or temporarily reducing the availability of larval habitats (habitat modification and habitat manipulation), or by adding substances to standing water that either kill or inhibit the development of larvae (larviciding). Objectives To evaluate the effectiveness of mosquito LSM for preventing malaria. Search methods We searched the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group Specialized Register; Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL); MEDLINE; EMBASE; CABS Abstracts; and ...

The use of microbial larvicides, a form of larval source management, is a less commonly used malaria control intervention that nonetheless has significant potential as a component of an integrated vector management strategy. We evaluated community acceptability of larviciding in a rural district in east-central Tanzania using data from 962 household surveys, 12 focus group discussions, and 24 in-depth interviews. Most survey respondents trusted in the safety (73.1%) and efficacy of larviciding, both with regards to mosquito control (92.3%) and to reduce malaria infection risk (91.9%). Probing these perceptions using a Likert scale provides a more detailed picture. Focus group participants and key informants were also receptive to larviciding, but stressed the importance of sensitization before its implementation. Overall, 73.4% of survey respondents expressed a willingness to make a nominal household contribution to a larviciding program, a proportion which decreased as the proposed contribution

Integrated Mosquito Management is a philosophy that employs several tools to manage, reduce, and eradicate the mosquito population. In order to accomplish these goals we must understand the mosquitoes that we are targeting that is why we place a lot of emphasis on mosquito surveillance through adult trapping and samples of mosquito larvae that are taken from the field. The data we gather from our surveillance identifies the mosquito species that we are dealing with, the quantity of mosquitoes in the local environment, any diseases that are present in the local mosquito population, the types of habitats that we need to target, and specific locations that need special attention due to increased mosquito activity and detection of West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). Mosquito abatement operations use biorational methods and mosquitocides in the form of adulticides, larvicides, and pupacides to eradicate mosquito populations to reduced levels in order to manage their growth. ...

Insecticide Treated Nets (ITNs) are an important tool for malaria control. ITNs are effective because they work on several parts of the mosquito feeding cycle, including both adult killing and repelling effects. Using an elaborated description of the classic feeding cycle model, simple formulas have been derived to describe how ITNs change mosquito behaviour and the intensity of malaria transmission, as summarized by vectorial capacity and EIR. The predicted changes are illustrated as a function of the frequency of ITN use for four different vector populations using parameter estimates from the literature. The model demonstrates that ITNs simultaneously reduce mosquitoes lifespans, lengthen the feeding cycle, and by discouraging human biting divert more bites onto non-human hosts. ITNs can substantially reduce vectorial capacity through small changes to all of these quantities. The total reductions in vectorial capacity differ, moreover, depending on baseline behavior in the absence of ITNs. Reductions
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that both large-scale mass distribution campaigns and continuous distribution be part of a multi-channel strategy to achieve and maintain universal access to insecticide-treated nets (ITN). Continuous distribution channels include routine ITN delivery at antenatal clinics and immunization visits (Expanded Program on Immunization), schools, community-based programs, and retail sales, including social marketing.. To support continuous distribution planning and implementation, the VectorWorks Project, with funding from the Presidents Malaria Initiative, has developed a comprehensive online CD toolkit. This toolkit contains current best practices and tools for planners and managers of continuous ITN distribution programs for developing timelines and budgets, quantifying ITN needs, and planning logistics, trainings, distribution, supervision, and monitoring, all in an easy-to-use format.. In addition to guiding the user through the steps to implement ...

The first indication of the presence of CHIKV in Florida will be human cases. Mosquito control and public health agencies in Florida will need knowledge of Ae. aegypti and/or Ae. albopictus populations, where they are produced, and hot spots with large populations that could be easily targeted for control. What can or should a mosquito control district do to control these populations? There is a great deal of information and experience clearly demonstrating that effective Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus control must involve public support and public participation to effectively reduce larval habitats. Plans must be in place on how to utilize citizens for these important surveillance and control efforts. Prevent mosquito infection.

Most studies accept the premise that malaria is contracted primarily in and around the home (but see [41]), even though in most parts of its vast range, An. darlingi tends to rest and feed outdoors (P Lounibos 2016, personal communication; see review in [73]). As a result, the majority of entomological studies reviewed here focus mosquito sampling efforts outside the forest, whether in terms of biting rate, adult mosquito capture or larval surveys: 58% of studies collected mosquitoes in peridomestic areas and/or indoors (14 or 24). Unfortunately, this leads to a circular logic where mosquito sampling in peridomestic areas or indoors leads to higher estimates of An. darlingi abundance, which reinforces the notion that this mosquito species is the main malaria vector in the region [42]. This conclusion then leads studies on the relationship between LULC and malaria to focus solely on An. darlingi, which then confirm that An. darlingi is found in more disturbed environments [27], such as areas ...

Science, in one of its meanings, is co-ordinated and systematized knowledge. Co-ordination and system imply classification, and it is useful occasionally to spend a little time in preparing or testing systematic groupings of the various phases of a given specialty. Exhaustive and organized lists of this sort may lead to clearer understanding of both extent and limitations of a subject, orienting one's thinking and perhaps suggesting lines of experimentation. Classifications of measures of malaria prophylaxis and mosquito control have been few and not very satisfactory. The material for this paper has been developed over a period of years and is based partly on studies published by Russell (1934), by Russell and Hackett (1938), and by Hackett et al. (1938). It is an attempt to prepare a systematic list in which every recently suggested measure is included in its logical place.
Improving house structure is known to limit contact between humans and mosquitoes and reduce malaria transmission risk. In the present study, the influence of house characteristics on mosquito distribution and malaria transmission risk was assessed in the city of Yaoundé. The study was conducted from March 2017 to June 2018 in 32 districts of the city of Yaoundé. Mosquito collections were performed indoor in 10 to 15 houses per district using CDC light traps. A total of 467 houses, selected randomly were used. A pretested questionnaire was submitted to participants of the study to collect information on the household: the number of people per house, education level, type of walls, presence of ceilings and eaves, number of windows, usage of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs), number of bedroom and number of window. Mosquitoes collected were identified morphologically. Anophelines were tested by ELISA to detect infection by Plasmodium parasites. General Estimating Equations adjusting for repeated

Existing malaria vector control methods (e.g. nets and insecticide sprays) primarily target mosquitoes that enter or attempt to enter human dwellings, yet mosquitoes also obtain significant proportions of essential resources outdoors. Fredros Okumu of Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania and his co-investigators therefore proposed the use of strategically-located outdoor vector control devices. In this projects Phase I research, the team created new and easy-to-use outdoor methods for luring, trapping and killing mosquitoes, including major African malaria vectors. By combining mosquito lures with mosquito-killing agents, they showed that in addition to trapping, it was consistently possible to contaminate and slowly kill between 74% and 95% of wild malaria vectors visiting the outdoor devices. In Phase II, the team will improve their decoy prototypes and explore practical ways in which the outdoor mosquito control strategy can be implemented by rural and remote communities in malaria endemic ...

  • Professionals from local health departments or mosquito control districts develop mosquito control plans, perform tasks to control larvae and adult mosquitoes, and evaluate the effectiveness of actions taken. (
  • Depending on the situation, source reduction, biocontrol, larviciding (killing of larvae), or adulticiding (killing of adults) may be used to manage mosquito populations. (
  • Monitoring larval mosquito populations involves collecting larvae from standing water with a dipper or a turkey baster. (
  • The network of ditches drains the mosquito habitat and lets in fish which will feed on mosquito larvae. (
  • Simply giving the predators access to the mosquito larvae can result in long-term mosquito control. (
  • In areas where water cannot be dumped, apply larvicide to keep the mosquito larvae from developing into flying mosquitoes that can bite. (
  • BTI is a naturally occurring bacterium that's deadly to both mosquito larvae and fungus gnat larvae. (
  • The BTI in Mosquito Bits® also provides an extremely fast and effective way to quickly kill large populations of mosquito larvae. (
  • As the Mosquito Bits® settle in the water, hungry mosquito larvae eat the Bits and die. (
  • Mosquito Bits® will kill mosquito larvae for seven to 14 days. (
  • Add Goldfish to Your Ponds - a single goldfish will consume over two hundred mosquito larvae in an hour. (
  • These cookie-sized pellets use beneficial bacteria to eat mosquito larvae, but is harmless to birds, fish, wildlife, and pets. (

  • Periodic over usage is recommended for control of soil borne insects and the eradication of insect egg and larvae. (
  • Keep water moving--mosquito larvae need still water. (
  • It all depends on how much mosquito larvae lay in the county`s wet areas and how much of the larvae predators have eaten. (
  • However, the gradual rain this winter not only has allowed more mosquitoes to hatch, but also has given predators more time than usual to eat large amounts of the larvae. (
  • Vector control products based on bacteria are designed to control larvae. (
  • They contain Bacillus thuringiensis (B.t.) that will keep the mosquito larvae from completing the life cycle. (
  • They engineered the mosquito larvae to express an enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP). (
  • The modified larvae were mixed with normal larvae, and the researchers were able to identify the modified male mosquitoes by their fluorescent gonads. (
  • Mosquitoes lay their eggs on the surface of standing water and within two days, the mosquito eggs hatch into larvae that live in water for up to two weeks. (
  • Mosquito larvae come to the water surface to take in oxygen through a breathing apparatus that resembles a snorkel. (
  • There are a number of ecological precautions you can take to keep your standing water free of mosquito larvae and subsequent adult hatchings. (
  • for example, dragonfly larvae feast heartily on mosquito larvae. (
  • These small, donut-shaped products slowly release Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti), a type of bacteria toxic to mosquito larvae, but harmless to humans and other mammals. (
  • One tablespoon of the bits sprinkled into standing water every two weeks during mosquito season will kill mosquito larvae before they can develop and emerge as adult insects. (
  • Sprayed on the surface of standing water, it prevents mosquito larvae from obtaining oxygen. (
  • can be used in any habitat that supports mosquito or black fly larvae including any standing water such as tree wells, tires, downspout puddles, rain barrels, bird baths, unused swimming pools and more! (
  • For example, the team has found what they call their "unpaid employees", the Gambusia, a native fish that lives in brackish water and feeds on mosquito larvae and other organic matter. (
  • DDT can wipe out mosquito populations and their larvae for up to four months at a time. (
  • Stock ornamental ponds with minnows or use appropriately labeled products to control mosquito larvae. (
  • Clear aquatic vegetation from around the edges of ponds to allow fish to feed on mosquito larvae and pupae. (
  • The earlier drought had eliminated the minnows that would normally feed on the mosquito larvae. (
  • Mosquito control consists of two approaches: targeting mosquito larvae (source reduction and larvaciding) and adult mosquitoes (adulticiding. (
  • Water sources that can't be eliminated can be treated with chemicals that prevent the growth of mosquito larvae. (
  • Bt israelensis (Bt-i) works to control mosquito, black fly and fungus gnat larvae. (
  • An artificial mosquito breeding ground could be a tire, bucket or any container capable of collecting water and containing five or more larvae. (
  • This larvicide gradually settles in the water where it is eaten by mosquito larvae growing there. (
  • The BITS will give a quick kill of existing mosquito larvae within 24 hours. (
  • Mosquito Bits are also approved and labeled as a biological control for fungus gnat larvae in planters and soils. (
  • Unfortunately, that's not what you heard back then Karen, because these amazing amphibians don't control mosquitoes or mosquito larvae. (
  • Is there anything I can use in a small stagnant fishpond to safely eliminate mosquito larvae? (
  • It is the responsibility of each property/home owner to eliminate or empty all containers that could possibly contain mosquito larvae, sometimes called "Wigglers. (
  • Researchers working in the Peruvian Amazon used adult Aedes aegypti mosquitoes to carry an insecticide to their own breeding sites, thus killing most larvae found there. (
  • The aquatic habitats, where A. aegypti lay their eggs and larvae develop, are ideal targets for mosquito control but repeatedly treating numerous breeding sites is difficult. (
  • Simply place a Dunk in any standing water to control mosquito larvae for up to 30 days. (
  • At Veterans' Memorial Park, Jordan Strand is on the lookout for mosquito larvae in standing water. (
  • Bti is used in organic farming and eliminates only mosquito and black fly larvae. (

  • Quick Guard ™ Mosquito Service begins working immediately to reduce mosquito populations in your yard and keeps working for weeks to give you long-lasting protection. (
  • Adult mosquito populations may be monitored by landing rate counts, mechanical traps or by, lidar technology For landing rate counts, an inspector visits a set number of sites every day, counting the number of adult female mosquitoes that land on a part of the body, such as an arm or both legs, within a given time interval. (
  • Monitoring these mosquito populations is crucial to see what species are present, if mosquito numbers are rising or falling, and detecting any diseases they carry. (
  • Eliminating such mosquito breeding areas can be an extremely effective and permanent way to reduce mosquito populations without resorting to insecticides. (
  • The use of SIT against mosquitoes is problematic, due mainly to the fitness costs and operational difficulty of irradiation, and the density-dependent nature of the target mosquito populations ( 10 - 12 ). (
  • Naled has been used for nearly six decades, primarily to control adult mosquito populations. (
  • Denver's Mosquito Management Program uses an approach designed to reduce public health concerns, and provide information and education to residents and business to help them keep mosquito populations at a safe level. (

  • When venturing into areas with high mosquito populations, the public should wear personal protection such as long sleeve shirts and long pants, preferably treated with a repellent. (
  • The team said developing drugs which targetted the protein could provide a way to reduce mosquito populations without harming beneficial insects such as bees. (
  • Miesfeld said the discovery - published in the scientific journal PLoS Biology on Tuesday - could make it easier to reduce mosquito populations during disease outbreaks, but added that the scientists did not want to eradicate the insect, which is a pollinator. (
  • Some towns are aggressively working to limit mosquito populations preventively and with widespread spraying of adults Great if you are in one of those areas. (
  • Traditional control methods, which have focused on reducing mosquito populations through the application of insecticides or preventing breeding through removal of larval habitat, are largely ineffective, as evidenced by the increasing global disease burden. (
  • Since World War II, disease control methods have relied heavily on broad-spectrum synthetic chemical insecticides to reduce vector populations. (
  • However, synthetic chemical insecticides are being phased out in many countries due to insecticide resistance in mosquito populations. (
  • Moreover, concerns have been raised about their long-term utility due to resistance, which has already been reported to B. sphaericus in field populations of Culex mosquitoes in several different countries. (
  • Professor Andrea Crisanti, senior author of the paper, from Imperial College London, said: "This advance could have enormous implications for controlling mosquito populations. (
  • This raised the possibility that genetic manipulation could be used as a control method in mosquito populations. (
  • The farming and ranching communities have discovered they can decrease mosquito and black fly populations without harming fish and beneficial insects and organisms in pastures and stock ponds, keeping their horses and livestock protected from mosquito borne diseases like West Nile Virus. (
  • And even before the year sinks into the summer months, mosquito control workers are faced with tough questions regarding the most socially and environmentally responsible ways to control mosquito populations in their communities. (
  • Michael Doyle, who recently moved to the Florida Keys to become director of Keys Mosquito Control, has built a career out of finding ways to control mosquito populations without resorting to the most effective, yet most environmentally hazardous method of using DDT. (

  • The goal of these varied activities is the reduction of mosquito populations for both protection of the public from the threat of mosquito-borne disease, as well as betterment of quality of life for Norfolk residents. (
  • They provide us with the valuable information to target areas of high mosquito populations and mosquito borne disease. (
  • When used in conjunction with Bonide Mosquito Beater® or Bug Beater® Fogs, our FOG RxTM machines produce dense fog that permeate foliage, cracks, crevices and other hiding places, quickly collapsing insect populations, leaving a safe, pest free environment for people, pets, plants and livestock---without pesticide residue. (
  • This study - led by researchers at the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology ( icipe ) in Kenya and the University of Glasgow, and published today in Nature Communications - presents what scientists hope could one day be a natural method of malaria control, through the discovery of a new microbe in wild populations of Anopheles mosquitoes in Kenya, which they call Microsporidia MB . (
  • Although the new Microsporidia MB symbiont is naturally found at relatively low levels in populations of malaria mosquitoes in Kenya, the researchers believe that there may be ways to increase the proportion of mosquitoes that carry the symbiont in order to limit their capacity to transmit malaria. (

(
  • The control of mosquito populations with insecticide treated bed nets and indoor residual sprays remains the cornerstone of malaria reduction and elimination programs. (
  • However, current mosquito control methods are severely threatened by the rapid spread of insecticide resistance in anopheline mosquito populations that transmit the malaria-causing Plasmodium parasites. (
  • This is a major limitation, as the increased application of both interventions over the last decade has inevitably led to the emergence and spread of insecticide resistance in natural mosquito populations. (
  • The city will treat with Ultra-Low-Volume sprayers to reduce adult mosquito populations. (
  • Control measures and treatments employed by the city are designed to reduce adult and breeding populations. (
  • Both programs utilize a balance of biological and chemical procedures that are environmentally compatible and economically feasible to reduce mosquito populations. (
  • Chemical control should be a last resort if the above methods do not succeed in suppressing tick populations. (
  • Recently such a review by Dr. John Reinert (2000) led to a change in the name of many mosquitoes belonging to the genus Aedes . (
  • This will necessitate the renaming of many mosquitoes previously named Aedes to the genus Ochlerotatus and the rewriting of many taxonomic keys important to public health entomologists working in mosquito control. (
  • Aedes aegypti is the major vector of dengue viruses in its range and control of this mosquito would reduce significantly human morbidity and mortality. (
  • It is a mosquito-borne viral disease and Aedes aegypti is the principal vector. (
  • The Zika virus is carried by a species of mosquito called Aedes aegypti. (
  • If the Aedes aegypti mosquito transmits the Zika virus to a pregnant woman, severe birth defects such as microcephaly can occur. (
  • The Aedes aegypti mosquito can breed indoors and outdoors and will bite anytime of the day or night. (
  • The life cycle of the Aedes aegypti mosquito is approximately seven days, so you should implement a regular routine to inspect your property for breeding habitats, dump standing water, and cover any areas that could collect standing water, especially after it rains. (
  • Zika virus is spread through the bite of the Aedes aegypti species mosquito. (
  • Two types of them (Aedes Aegypti and Aedes albopictus) carry the Zika virus, which is an "urban" mosquito. (
  • The Aedes Aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquito does not breed in those bodies of water. (
  • The spraying of pesticides was targeting the Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti species of mosquito, which can carry and transmit the virus. (
  • They update maps created over a decade ago, which showed much smaller estimated U.S. ranges for these two species, Aedes aegypti , the " yellow fever " mosquito, and Aedes albopictus , the "Asian tiger" mosquito. (
  • That's largely because the systems that track mosquitoes in the U.S. are set up to track culex mosquitos, which pass the West Nile virus , not the aedes species that pass Zika. (
  • Using the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, Lan and her research colleagues discovered that a sterol-carrying protein, AeSCP-2, is the vehicle that transports cholesterol in mosquito cells. (
  • Hill's team showed that DAR antagonists have high potency for both the larval and adult stages of the Aedes aegypti mosquito - which transmits yellow fever, dengue and chikungunya - and Culex quinquefasciatus , the vector of West Nile virus and the disfiguring disease elephantiasis. (

  • No one told the Aedes mosquito that New York is the city that never sleeps. (
  • Of particular interest among these proteins is Cyt1A, which synergizes and delays resistance to mosquitocidal Cry proteins and can be used to overcome resistance to Bs, as well as extend its spectrum of activity to, for example, the yellow fever mosquito Aedes aegypti ( Fig. 1 ). (
  • The mosquito Aedes aegypti expresses the long-wavelength rhodopsin Aaop1 in all R1-R6 photoreceptors and most R8 photoreceptors. (
  • The mosquito Aedes aegypti is the vector for transmission of the flaviviruses that cause yellow fever and dengue fever. (

  • This photo shows a researcher looking at Aedes mosquitoes infected with Wolbachia . (
  • Aedes mosquitoes carrying the bacterium Wolbachia --found inside the cells of 60 percent of all insect species--are drastically less able to transmit Zika virus, say researchers at Brazil's Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ) in a study published May 4 in Cell Host & Microbe . (
  • Originally inserted into Aedes eggs as part of the Eliminate Dengue Program , the bacterium is passed on from mother mosquitoes to offspring, so it is a sustainable control agent. (
  • After four years, researchers were successful in their attempts to isolate the bacterium from fruit flies and get it inside Aedes mosquitoes' eggs, without using any genetic alteration. (
  • The same effect was previously seen on Chikungunya virus, also transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. (
  • The idea has been to release Aedes mosquitoes with Wolbachia in the field over a period of a few months, so they mate with Aedes mosquitoes without Wolbachia living in the place and, over time, replace the mosquito population," says senior author Luciano Moreira of the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation. (
  • We know that there will not be only one solution for Zika--we have to do this alongside different approaches, like vaccines or insecticides, besides the public measures to control Aedes breeding sites. (
  • Some mosquitoes are capable of transmitting diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue, filariasis and encephalitis [St. Louis encephalitis (SLE), Western Equine encephalitis (WEE), LaCrosse encephalitis (LAC), Japanese encephalitis (JE), Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile virus (WNV)] to humans and animals. (
  • Mosquito control is a vital public-health practice throughout the world and especially in the tropics because mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria and the Zika virus. (

  • April 1, 2016 -- Mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus could be a problem in most states this year. (
  • With warmer weather -- and mosquito season -- rapidly approaching, the CDC unveiled new maps painting a bleak picture of the issues facing states and counties as they prepare for local transmission of Zika. (
  • The first maps suggest Zika-carrying mosquitoes could show up in all but about 10 states in the U.S. this year, a much wider range than previously thought. (
  • About half of the U.S. doesn't have any vector control at all, including counties in areas expected to be at risk for local Zika outbreaks like southern Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. (
  • The new maps offer the CDC's best guess of where two different mosquito species that are known to be able to pass Zika to people may be this year. (

  • With the rainy season about to arrive and 45 confirmed Zika cases this year, more than any other county in Florida, Miami-Dade commissioners will consider changing the county's legal code on Tuesday to empower mosquito control workers during public health emergencies to act within two days instead of the current five to clear empty containers and other breeding grounds for the disease-spreading insects when located on private property. (
  • Gimenez said that if and when there is a locally transmitted case by mosquito bite confirmed in Miami-Dade, the county and the Florida Department of Health will work together to step up public awareness and education efforts, such as the "Drain and Cover" campaign launched in February after Gov. Rick Scott declared a public health emergency for Zika. (
  • The Zika virus, which is primarily transmitted through mosquito bites, was first identified in 1947 in Africa, but has appeared in the Americas in the last couple of years. (
  • The approach is already being piloted to control Dengue virus transmission and, with the proper resources and approvals, there's infrastructure in place to increase the scale of current trials to also help tackle the Zika epidemic. (
  • Zika and Dengue belong in the same family of viruses, so with the outbreak in Brazil, the logical idea was to test the mosquitoes carrying Wolbachia by challenging them with Zika virus and see what would happen" he says. (
  • Moreira's team gave Brazilian field mosquitoes and Wolbachia -infected mosquitoes Zika virus by feeding them human blood infected by two recent strains of the virus that is circulating in Brazil. (
  • The tests showed that the virus present in the mosquito saliva was not active--meaning that, after biting, the mosquito would not be able to transmit Zika virus. (
  • Now that it's mosquito season, it is the perfect time to look in and around your home for ways to control mosquitoes that can carry viruses like Zika and West Nile. (

  • Some mosquitoes are nuisance mosquitoes that bite people but do not spread viruses. (
  • In addition, male-only release is preferred for mosquito SIT due to the biting nuisance and potential disease transmission caused by adult females. (
  • Even in areas that do have some kind of vector control, it is often geared more to controlling the nuisance of mosquito bites. (
  • We recognize mosquitoes are a nuisance and can be especially active in neighborhoods that are near waterways and natural areas. (
  • For years, we were basically nuisance control, but when West Nile hit New York City in 1999, there was a big change to public health," said Bill Mehaffey, district supervisor for the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control and Wetlands Management District , which services 33 cities and towns, primarily in Essex County. (

  • Entomology lidar detection has the possibility of showing the difference between male and female mosquitoes. (
  • Researchers at the University of Arizona said they had discovered a protein unique to female mosquitoes which is critical for their young to hatch. (
  • Female mosquitoes, which are the disease vectors, generally require a blood meal to provide sufficient nutrients for egg production [ 8 ] and thus are attracted to the heat and smell produced by humans or animals, being able to detect odorants such as carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), lactic acid, and 1-octen-3-ol [ 9 ]. (
  • The carbon dioxide emitters capture a lot of bugs, but most are not the biting female mosquitoes. (
  • Female mosquitoes are responsible for spreading malaria, and also for damage to crops, but they are only able to breed once before dying. (
  • When the genetically modified mosquitoes were mixed with normal male and female mosquitoes, they found the females were as likely to breed with the modified mosquitoes as they were with the normal ones. (

  • And that's not all you have to worry about when it comes to mosquitoes-they're also vectors for disease with some of them carrying and transmitting dengue and malaria among others. (
  • Worldwide, mosquitoes are notorious for spreading not only malaria, but also dengue fever (so painful it s commonly called "break bone fever"), several forms of encephalitis, yellow fever, and West Nile virus. (
  • In the genetic approach, she says, researchers are working on ways to modify the malaria mosquito so that it cannot transmit disease, but it can still take a blood meal. (
  • Mosquitoes are one of the world's deadliest animals, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) which has warned that global progress against malaria is stalling. (
  • Similar protein receptors exist in the African malaria mosquito, the sand fly and the tsetse fly, suggesting that DAR antagonists could help control these disease-transmitting insects as well. (
  • 1 ]. For mosquito-borne disease outbreaks carried by nocturnal mosquitoes in Thailand, malaria is the most important and Anopheles spp. (
  • 10 ] developed a sticky resting box for catching malaria vectors, which was generally found to be effective in collecting mosquitoes but had a varying performance between areas. (
  • The availability of these novel strains and newly discovered mosquitocidal proteins, such as the Mtx toxins of B. sphaericus , offers the potential for constructing a range of recombinant bacterial insecticides for more effective control of the mosquito vectors of filariasis, Dengue fever and malaria. (
  • The team used the mosquito Anopheles stephensi, the mosquito responsible for much of the malaria in Asia. (
  • Professor Crisanti adds: "Although there have been a number of control programmes to eradicate malaria, none of these have been entirely successful, and many have also had side effects, such as environmental damage through insecticides. (
  • Until now, there have been very few known examples of microbes that affect malaria transmission mosquitoes. (
  • By studying malaria mosquitoes in their natural environments, mainly at icipe 's Thomas Odhiambo Campus in Mbita on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya, the researchers found that mosquitos carrying Microsporidia MB did not harbour malaria parasites in nature, or in experimental infections in the lab. (
  • Dr Herren added: "Further studies will be needed to determine precisely how Microsporidia MB could be used to control malaria. (
  • The results of these studies will give us key information that will be used to determine how we could then disseminate Microsporidia MB for malaria control. (
  • Here in Thailand, we are familiar with mosquitoes, in some parts of the country the carry malaria and dengue fever. (
  • Here, we show that compounds targeting steroid hormone signaling disrupt multiple biological processes that are key to the ability of mosquitoes to transmit malaria. (
  • When an agonist of the steroid hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) is applied to Anopheles gambiae females, which are the dominant malaria mosquito vector in Sub Saharan Africa, it substantially shortens lifespan, prevents insemination and egg production, and significantly blocks Plasmodium falciparum development, three components that are crucial to malaria transmission. (
  • Manipulating 20E pathways therefore provides a powerful new approach to tackle malaria transmission by the mosquito vector, particularly in areas affected by the spread of insecticide resistance. (
  • Mosquito control is the only intervention that can reduce malaria transmission from very high levels to close to zero. (
  • Even with new drugs and vaccines in the research pipeline [ 3 ], control of the Anopheles species that transmit human malaria remains the cornerstone of prevention and transmission reduction efforts [ 2 , 4 ]. (
  • Of the four classes of insecticides available for malaria control, pyrethroids are the only compounds approved for use on long-lasting insecticide-impregnated bed nets (LLINs), due to their relatively low toxicity, and they are heavily used in indoor residual spray (IRS) programs [ 5 ]. (
  • Although mosquito coils are widely used, there is no robust evidence that their use can provide clinical reduction in malaria. (
  • Mosquitoes are insects belonging to the order Diptera, the True Flies. (
  • Dry weather will also cut down on the actual mosquito population since the insects thrive in wet, vegetative areas. (
  • Fungus gnats can infest potted plants, and the insects can be difficult to control. (
  • There is a real danger, he said, that counties might undertake an extensive spraying program for mosquitoes using a chemical that wouldn't kill the mosquitoes but might kill helpful insects, like bees. (
  • Miesfeld said current methods of controlling mosquitoes had been used for so long that the insects were becoming resistant. (
  • The researchers used the mosquito genome to pinpoint chemicals that will be more selective than current insecticides, which bind readily to molecules in humans and non-target insects, said Catherine Hill , professor of entomology and Showalter Faculty Scholar. (
  • When applied to the lawn or garden, mosquito sprays help to mask the odors that would attract mosquitoes and replace them with scents that repel the insects. (
