4 Focus spraying efforts on the bed-
room, since this is where mosquitoes
are most likely to be. Walls should be
sprayed, since it is there the mosquitoes
sit before and after taking a meal from
the host. Air conditioning units also
help, but the temperature must be
below 24 degrees.
5 Use creams with Deet, which can
be put on the skin to prevent bites.
These strategies will help the average
person, but the government s strategy
should be coordinated to control source
reduction on a larger scale.
Source control is especially important
as Chadee s latest research (in a paper
published in the journal Acta Tropica
last year) suggests the mosquito prob-
lem is evolving.
"Previously," he said, "the breeding
habitats of Aedes aegypti were relatively
clean water. However, they re adapting
to the environment and, they re going
where they weren t before, including
sewers, pit latrines, and septic tanks."
His research has also revealed that
mosquitoes can emerge copulate and
blood feed in total darkness. In that
situation the life cycle is reduced by a
couple of days. But if the mosquitoes
go to underground environments, their
life cycle gets faster.
More worryingly, in the wild, he dis-
covered that mosquitoes were living
more than 100 days, as opposed to the
30 days they are believed to survive.
This raises a whole new set of problems,
since a mosquito which survives 90
days will produce eggs and mosquitoes
who are born transmitters. They will
not have to feed off an infected person
to acquire the virus to transmit.
To address these breeding and mos-
quito population control issues, Chadee
is one of the pioneers of sterile male
technique---where male mosquitoes are
sterilised using radiation and released
into the wild. He is going to China later
this year to work on the sterilisation
techniques, and has done work in Mau-
ritius, Reunion and St Vincent.
Unfortunately, said Chadee, he has
not been used or consulted by the gov-
ernment of Trinidad & Tobago, despite
it being UWI s mandate to provide this
sort of support to regional governments.
"We are here and ready to help when
asked," he said.
