Abstract

Summary

The city of Georgetown, British Guiana, with its complex system of rain water collection and storage, in the absence of a piped potable water supply, presented an extremely difficult problem in eradication. An abnormally short egg-adult cycle added to the difficulties.

The special problems encountered and the methods used to solve them are described. The spraying of the interiors of houses with DDT proved a most potent weapon in aedes eradication and was cheaper and quicker than classical anti-aedes measures.
