CDC bulletin, July, August, September, 1947
  • Description:
    In this issue: "A Preliminary report on malaria control by DDT residual spraying" - "Entomological evaluations of results of DDT spraying during 1946." To combat the possibility of transmission of malaria from returning servicemen to the civilian population, especially in the traditionally endemic malaria areas in the South, an emergency program directed against adult mosquitoes was initiated by the U. S. Public Health Service during the 1945 malaria season. The activity is called the Extended Malalaria Control Program and consists principally of the use of DDT as a residual spray on the interior of houses. This Extended Program is so named to distinguish it from the Malaria Control in War Areas Program which was carried on during the war to protect MILITARY personnel in this country from CIVILIAN malaria and which was the exact opposite aim of the Extended Program. In the Extended Malaria Control Program during the calendar year 1945 approximately 400,000 houses were sprayed one or more times in 119 counties of 13 states, and expanded so that approximately 750,000 houses were sprayed one or more times in 266 counties of 13 states during 1946. Figure 1 shows a map of all areas of operations in 1946. The Extended Program is based on results of laboratory work which demonstrated the residual effect of DDT and its lethal action against adult mosquitoes.
