Abstract

This WHO manual is the result of the collaborative effort of 11 principle contributors and 35 reviewers, all of whom are experts in various aspects of the control of mosquitoes by environmental management. In pooling their knowledge and experience they have produced a manual that is comprehensive in scope and accurate in detail.

The manual consists of seven chapters, which are ordered in a fashion to educate and prepare the reader to apply the principles and methodology of environmental management for mosquito control. The introduction (Chapters I and II) recognizes goals and objectives of environmental management, reviews mosquito bionomics related to epidemiology and control, and defines advantages and effects of environmental management. Extensively detailed in methodology, Chapters III, IV and V deal with environmental modification measures, environmental manipulation strategies, and time-honored ways of reducing man-mosquito contact. Chapter VI deals with planning environmental management for mosquito control, presenting an orderly approach from problem definition to project evaluation.
