Plague control methods used in agriculture could help in the fight against malariaPosted: July 26, 2012
In order to develop effective IVM, thorough knowledge of the various control strategies must first be gathered. Surprisingly little research has been carried out into this field, say the authors, who are now arguing the case for substantial research efforts and funding. They also state that it is essential for local populations to be involved when developing control programmes.
The researchers warn that there is no ready-made solution (or ‘quick fix’) for eradicating the malaria mosquito.
