Vector Control

Limiting Disease

Vector Control is any method to limit or eradicate mammals, birds, insects, or other arthropods (invertebrates having jointed limbs and a segmented body with an exoskeleton made of chitin) which transmit disease pathogens. This section introduces the aspects of controlling pests such as mosquitoes, ticks, and other harmful small insects that can cause great illness to an individual if not taken care of.

Common Concerns

Mosquitoes and ticks are the most common concerns. These insects are known for Malaria, West Nile, Lyme disease, and other insect-related illnesses that have been a major threat to public health for many years.


These diseases range from viral, bacterial, or even parasitic, which is why it can be very complex to determine a cure because these diseases/infections are always changing. It is important to examine these insects and pests by means of their diagram, what they do, how they affect humans, and how we can protect ourselves from receiving infections from them.
