    mesheuropmc: parasitic diseases

Despite the widespread use of insecticides, community engagement programmes and preventive measures mosquito borne diseases are growing and new tools to prevent the spread of disease are urgently needed. An alternative control measure for the eradication of Anopheles mosquitoes is suggested by the use of a Sustainable Control Model, which demonstrates the capability of Odonata, a natural beneficial predator, to exercise control over Anopheles mosquitoes in less than 140 days.
