Painting Against Dengue

Bart Knols of K&S Consulting in the Netherlands will develop and test a surface coating that slowly releases mosquito attractants and a pesticide that female mosquitoes take back to breeding sites to kill emerging larvae. If successful, the coating can be used as a household paint to induce birth control in vector populations, thus reducing transmission.
