Man made Malaria (3)

This is reminiscent of Mao's semi-successful control policies for
birds and flies, and for that matter, the original comment, "I have
found you, you million murderer". I agree that mosquitoes are not
strong fliers and take long enough to develop, that larvicides and
other source reduction policies, work consistently. Most malaria ex-
perts will disagree, but I think you have a very good point.
