How can the number of mosquitoes be reduced?

  1. By reducing the mosquito population with the use of controlled spraying around homes with insecticides. This is done by state-employed teams.
  2. By reducing pools of water where mosquitoes can breed.

Malarial mosquitoes have become resistant to many insecticides. The controlled use of DDT is very effective but remains controversial due to the risk of environmental pollution and dangers to other animals and possibly the newborn infant.
