How to control mosquitoes

Malaria is an acute infectious disease affecting humans (the host), caused by the parasite called Plasmodia (the agent), and spread by the female anopheles mosquito (the vector). The control of the disease would therefore attack the problem as it involves the three living beings: the anopheles mosquito, the Plasmodia parasite and Man.

When the female anopheles mosquito bites an individual infected with the Plasmodium parasite, the parasite enters the mosquito's body and the mosquito becomes a carrier able to transmit the organism into another human. The parasite enters the human body from the mosquito's saliva and, after entering the blood stream of the human, travels to the liver and eventually invades the red blood cells.

Parasitic infestation of the blood cells damage their integrity and eventually leads to their rupture. Each time an infected blood cell ruptures a malaria attack occurs. The attacks of fever and chills, which can occur every 2-3 days, last several hours, and may include headache, muscular pain, and nausea.

High moisture years produce breeding areas for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes need areas that are periodically flooded or areas of standing or slow moving water to reproduce. The mosquito's eggs are laid on the water, and then hatch into small aquatic "wigglers" (larvae). These wigglers grow to adults. Regions of flooding or areas where there is slow moving water are prime areas for reproduction. Some of the more common sites include puddling from watering and irrigation, areas periodically inundated from stream run-off, ponds, marsh areas, hoof holes left by animals near watering areas, dripping faucets, wells, and standing water in old tires, clogged roof gutters, and boats.

The product lines, which we intend to introduce initially into Ghana and then other African countries, will address the issues for control of malaria by preventing mosquito bites and mosquito entry into the living quarters, business establishments, work places, and schools. Our goal is to control the mosquitoes and protect individuals from bites and the devastating diseases (e.g. malaria) that may ensue.
