We developed three types of covers that are easily fabricated from plastic screen locally manufactured in Thailand. The covers were designed to permit normal use of water jars for drinking, utility water uses, and water storage. Tests of the covers in the laboratory and field demonstrated that they could completely prevent successful development of (L.) in water jars. Initial experience in a village setting demonstrated that these devices were readily manufactured and used in a community-based program. Village residents adapted the covers to local patterns of water use, collecting rainwater through the screen and adjusting cover use to water depth.
