Mosquito Control Services

Mosquitoes are some of the greatest threats to the health and wellbeing of all Nigerians. They have painful bites that made restful night sleep almost impossible; and they are responsible for such deadly diseases as malaria, yellow fever, hydrocele, and even the deadly new disease called Zika. Efforts to control mosquito are therefore of utmost importance not only to individual persons, but also to government whose primary responsibility is the wellbeing of the citizens. Governments at all levels have made a lot of efforts at mosquito control, but these efforts have been found to be too little, too infrequent, hence the need for individuals to make their own effort, for their own protection and the protection of their households.

Methods individuals can use to control mosquito include: Indoor Residual Insecticide spray; use of wall paints containing insecticides; Insecticide Treated bed net; and Insecticide treated window nets. Indoor Residual Insecticide spray involves spraying insecticides on walls and other surfaces to kill mosquito or other insects that perches on the sprayed surface. The spraying of the insecticide is carried out by trained personnel wearing protective clothing and facemask, because the inhalation of the insecticides as they are being sprayed have been found to be dangerous to health, and sometimes even deadly.

Self-help books

Name of book: Larval source management – a supplementary measure for malaria vector control. An operational manual

Brief description of the book: Larval source management (LSM) refers to the targeted management of mosquito breeding sites, with the objective to reduce the number of mosquito larvae and pupae. When appropriately used, LSM can contribute to reducing the numbers of both indoor and out-door biting mosquitoes, and – in malaria elimination phase – it can be a useful addition to programme tools to reduce the mosquito population in remaining malaria ‘hotspots’.

This operational manual has been designed primarily for National Malaria Control Programmes as well as field personnel. It will also be of practical use to specialists working on public health vector control, and malaria programme specialists working with bilateral donors, funders and implementation partners. It has been written by senior public health experts of the malaria vector control community under the guidance of the WHO Global Malaria Programme.

Mosquito Control Products

Insecticidal wall paints

These are house paints in which insecticides have been added in forms in which the insecticides are gradually released on the surface of the dried paint, thereby killing any mosquito or insect that perch on the painted surface. Insecticidal paints are effective against all the mosquito species that rest on the wall after feeding. This includes the mosquitoes that cause malaria, yellow fever, Zika and hydrocele. The paints can be applied by anybody using an ordinary paint brush. It is active for at least one year, and should therefore be applied every year, preferably at the beginning of the rainy season, when mosquito activity is at the highest.

Insecticide Treated Bed Net

This is a bed net that has been treated with insecticides that kill mosquitoes as they perch on the bed net to bite the person sleeping inside the bed net. The insecticides are now impregnated on the bed net, as the bed net is being manufactured, and remain active for at least five years, even after washing the net multiple times. Insecticide-treated bed bets (ITNs) are more effective against the malaria-causing anopheles mosquitoes that bite late in the night, when people are asleep in the net. They therefore protect against malaria, and grant a restful night sleep. They however have little effects on mosquito species such as culex that bite day and night, when people are awake and are outside the net.
