Abstract

Part I. Medical personnel accompanying the Armed Forces in the field, at home, and scattered widely over the world, make this an unprecedented opportunity for the collection and study of mosquitoes.

Not all mosquitoes transmit disease, and not all transmit malaria. If only from an economic point of view, the impossibility of eliminating all forms of mosquito life in or about militarized areas, isolated outposts, airfields and temporary bivouacs can readily be seen.

Accurate knowledge of the habits of mosquitoes, as to the conditions under which they breed, their range and hours of flight, their day time hideouts, their preference for animal versus human blood, whether or not they enter houses to feed, etc., and, above all, whether or not they are capable of transmitting disease, is, therefore, of economic as well as medical importance, to enable Medical Officers to successfully combat their menace to the health and efficiency of the Military and Naval Forces.
