BIOLOGICAL CONTROL METHODS- ANTI LARVAL MEASURES

Compiled by Dr Seethal Rose PSM.

anti larval measures

Fish have been widely used in public health, since as early as 1903. One of the most successful and widely used biological control agents against mosquito larvae is the top water minnow or mosquito fish Gambusia affinis. Fish other than Gambusia which has received the most attention as a mosquito control agent is Poecilia reticulata, the common guppy introduced in 1910.
