How Can We Control the Breeding of Mosquitoes?

Few steps are recommended to destruct mosquitoes at different stages, they are:

  • Eliminate breeding places – breeding places of mosquitoes should be completely destroyed. Suitable measures should be taken to fill up puddles and small ponds. 
  • Spraying – spraying DDT and such insecticides in mosquito-dwelling places can destroy adult mosquitoes 
  • Biological control – the introduction of fishes such as Gambusia in ponds can selectively devour mosquito larvae
  • Spraying on stagnant water – some greasy oil or kerosene should be poured on water making a thin film on the surface. The oil kills pupae and larvae when they surface to breathe
