Excerpt
While we are finding out more and more about new infections and their modes of transmission, problems of vector resistance to insecticides and insecticide non-selectivity are becoining more and more evident. These problems have complicated some malaria eradication programmes and they must be given the fullest consideration as new vector control programmes develop under WHO sponsorship. Again, control procedures evolved in developed areas may require profound nlodification for use under tropical conditions. The effective application of cl~emicals in the jungle, in extensive primary forests or in sparsely inhabited swainps is both difficult and expensive. In many cases the solution of the problem of transmission is not eradication, but reduction of the number of vector insects. For such purposes biological methods nlay prove as effective as chemical ones, without suffering from the disadvantage-namely, vertebrate toxicity -of the latter.
