[afro-nets] Mosquito/Malaria Control (47)

Mosquito/Malaria Control (47)
-----------------------------

Resistance and the mechanisms that cause it in mosquitoes is far
better understood today than when resistance first became appar-
ent. This phenomenon can be pretty well avoided by rotation of
insecticides used and using different classes of insecticides
for IRS, outdoor ULV, and larvaciding. 95% is the minimum mor-
tality rate. In most cases the real number is more like 99%.
This is referring only to adulticiding activities. When the
other methods are added to this, the effects can be quite dra-
matic.

I also agree with you that rural areas present a different prob-
lem that is much more difficult to address, but not impossible.
