with mosquito problems with them. Because there is massive overkill,we can clear whole areas of the problem. We have to have blanket coverage of every source of water, from rivers, down to puddles in order for extinction to occur.
Many years ago there was an article in New Scientist magazine that said that flies avoided the dead bodies of other flies. I have used this fact several times over the years and find that it holds true. All you have to do is kill a few flies, cut their bodies into three, and put the body parts on window sills and at doors in order to avoid them flying in. A refugee camp once surrounded it's border with dead flies in order to avoid these disease carriers. My point is, this also works with mosquitoes, and is a free way of avoiding malaria, not only can property be protected in this way, but so can the individual when easily killed mosquito corpses are kept in pockets. If scientists could find the chemical given off by the dead body of a mosquito that repels others then we could have a an effective mosquito spray on our hands. (This will not work with wasps).

Problems with mosquitoes led me to use a vacuum cleaner to rid the house of these insects at bedtime. Since I do this, there's a drastic reduction in the presence of these invaders, and only rarely do they appear indoors. Is there also a psychological effect here?
