Physical Control

Physical control, also known as source reduction, is a long-term control strategy that is very cost effective for mosquito and vector control programs. This strategy requires the manipulation of the habitat where mosquitoes and other vectors develop to prevent future breeding. Improving water circulation at a site so that there is little if any stagnation of the water or removal of rubbish and food sources are all examples of habitat management.
