Evaluation of the push-pull strategy for the control of outdoor biting mosquitoes

Protecting people from outdoor biting mosquitoes with a combination of traps and repellents: A new method of mosquito control has been proposed that combines the use of odour baited mosquito traps and spatial insect repellents – in what is known as a push-pull system. The project will investigate different traps and different spatial repellents to identify the combination that is most successful at reducing the number of mosquito bites someone receives. This project is working closely with teams in Kenya and Europe under the larger project – East African Collaboration on Mosquito Push-Pull (EACo MoPP).
