    "Eradication of an insect from a large geographical area is a most difficult entomological accomplishment. Moderately effective measures often suffice to reduce insect populations to an inoffensive level, but eradication requires a sharpening and enlarging of all abatement activities. Therefore the Andes aegypti eradication program requires sincere devotion to duty and the best efforts of well trained, alert workers. This handbook provides the professional worker with information about this mosquito, its identification, significant habits, and the equipment and techniques used to seek out infestations, take and preserve samples, and identify the specimens. As mosquito populations are reduced, the task of the field inspector becomes increasingly more difficult and the role of identifications becomes even more significant in verifying eradication. The able supervisory inspectors and taxonomists will not confine their studies solely to this handbook, but will seek out and study other references, and will strengthen their abilities with field observations that may disclose new knowledge significant to the Program.
