Mosquitoes are an important vector for several arthropod borne diseases like dengue, chikungunya, Japanese encephalitis, malaria & filaria which have become common in tropical countries like India with a variable rate of morbidity and mortality.rnThe population of these mosquitoes have increased due to rapid urbanization and inadequate control measures leading to resurgence of the diseases. Various larvicide methods have been tried but without appreciable sustained results. The present study aims to evaluate the efficacy of an adult mosquito population control by use of a “swat” which is ecofriendly and economical. The results of the study is encouraging and can be tried at the national level.
