Use Of Insecticide-Treated House Screens To Reduce Infestations Of Dengue Virus Vectors, Mexico
Description:Dengue prevention efforts rely on control of virus vectors. We investigated use of insecticide-treated screens permanently affixed to windows and doors in Mexico and found that the screens significantly reduced infestations of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in treated houses. Our findings demonstrate the value of this method for dengue virus vector control.
