Reducing contact to insects for reducing infection risks

  • Insect Breeding Control
  • Public Health

Global change, parasite transmission and disease control: lessons from ecology. Parasitic infections are ubiquitous in wildlife, livestock and human populations, and healthy ecosystems are often parasite rich. Yet, their negative impacts can be extreme. Understanding how both anticipated and cryptic changes in a system might affect parasite transmission at an individual, local and global level is critical for sustainable control in humans and livestock.
