Eliminate Mosquitoes Early

 

 

A new vaccine for malaria is being developed by scientists of the not-for-profit Malaria Vaccine Initiative.

They are making the vaccine with the saliva from mosquitoes because the parasite is transmitted through the mosquitoes' salivary glands to the people they bite.

For homeowners, the time to kill mosquitoes is before they become mosquitoes. In the larval stage.
