Abstract

During the last decade, scale-up of vector control tools such as long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) contributed to the reduction of malaria morbidity and mortality across the continent. Because these first line interventions are now affected by many challenges such as insecticide resistance, change in vector feeding and biting behaviour, outdoor malaria transmission and adaptation of mosquito to polluted environments, the World Health Organization recommends the use of integrated control approaches to improve, control and elimination of malaria. Larviciding is one of these approaches which, if well implemented, could help control malaria in areas where this intervention is suitable. Unfortunately, important knowledge gaps remain in its successful application. The present review summarises key parameters that should be considered when implementing larviciding efficacy or effectiveness trials.
