Excerpt
Throughout history mosquitoes have occupied a position of importance as a pest of mankind, but not until the late 19th century were these arthropods identified as the agents responsible for transmission to man of some of his more devastating diseases. During subsequent years, knowledge of the relationship of mosquitoes to disease has expanded; and knowledge of methods for controlling these disease vectors has often provided us with means toward reducing or eliminating the diseases in many areas. In this manual the importance of mosquitoes to human health in the United States is considered, along with basic information on mosquito, identification, biology, and control.
