About this book

Covering the theory and practice of non-insecticidal control of insect vectors of human disease, this book provides an overview of methods including the use of botanical biocides and insect-derived semiochemicals, with an overall focus on integrated vector management strategies. While the mainstay of malaria control programmes relies on pesticides, there is a resurgence in the research and utilisation of non-insecticidal control measures due to concerns over rapid development and spread of insecticide resistance, and long-term environmental impacts. This book provides examples of successful applications in the field and recommendations for future use.

Biography

Mary Cameron obtained a BSC in Zoology from Bedford College, University of London, in 1983, and a PhD in Entomology in 1987. She originally joined the Department of Entomology at LSHTM in 1984, to study oviposition behaviour in mosquitoes, but later left to take up a post-doc position at the University of Oxford in 1990. After field work on sandfly biology in Peru, and her appointment at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine as a Research Fellow, Mary re-joined LSHTM in 1995 to conduct laboratory and clinical trials to reduce house dust mite allergens in homes. She was appointed Lecturer in 1998.
