Outstanding features of the mosquito control work of the United States Army in 1943

, : Outstanding features of the mosquito control work of the United States Army in 1943. Proc Ann Meet New Jersey Mosquito Extermin Assoc 31: 126-128

Mosquito control was a major routine activity at some 350 Army camps, posts and stations in the U. S. during 1943. Control measures included both drainage and larvicidal work. 6,836,000 man-hrs. of labor were utilized. Malaria rates of the Army in this country in 1943 were approx. 1 case per 3,000 soldiers per yr. This rate is 1/2 the 1942 rate and approx. 1/11 or less of the 1918 and 1919 rates. All Army personnel are now receiving specific instruction on malaria prevention. Precautionary measures to control any possibility of spread of exotic strains of malaria are being taken by the Army and U. S. Public Health Service in the vicinity of General Hospitals.
