Discussion of the Paper on Stegomyia

  • A. W. A. Brown

Abstract

Dr McClelland, in summarizing the achievements and prospects in the control of Stegomyia mosquitos, has told us much about the yellow-fever vector Aedes simpsoni, but quite rightly has paid very great attention to Aedes aegypti, the urban vector of yellow fever and of the dengue viruses. With respect to A. aegypti he has told us that much of its control or management depends on “people management”. With respect to chemical control, he cites the experience of Gould and co-workers in Thailand that chemically treated populations subsequently recovered to higher numbers than before, and quotes Newsom’s conclusion that we must recognize the end of the era of chemical control.
