YIF is assessing a cold fogger for adult mosquito control

There is a new addition to the YIF toolbox for vector control – a vehicle mounted cold fogger has been imported from the UK for trials to determine whether a routine space treatment can drastically reduce a mosquito population and thus protect people from outdoor biting and  malaria transmission in urban areas. The research complements extensive field trials carried by YIF on slow release pesticides for Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS). This photo is from the United States where space spraying for adult mosquito control is widespread.
