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
