Principal methods for anti-vector protection against mosquitoes (from Carnevale, Robert et al. 2009)*.

*In this RGP document the only methods considered and evaluated were those that reduce host-vector contact.

Classification of methods for anti-vector protection
1) Protection technique: . physical, biological, chemical, genetically
2) Target: . larvae, adults
3) Effect sought by impairing:
- host-vector contact: . wearing of long-sleeved and long-legged clothes
. cutaneous repellents
. impregnated clothing (repellents-insecticides)
. protection by domestic use of pesticides (aerosols, coils, etc…)
. simple or impregnated mosquito nets for beds (repellents-insecticides)
- vector density: . reduction of larva nests by modification of their environment
. larva control with biological larvicides (larvivorous fish), biopesticides (Bacillus thuringiensis) or chemical larvicides
. impregnated bed mosquito nets used at high scale (mass effect)
. spatial spraying
- vector life-span: . intra-domiciliary spraying
. impregnated bed mosquito nets used at high scale (mass effect)
. spatial spraying
