Current status and future prospects of bacilli-based vector control
Mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria,filariasis,dengue,chikungunya,Japanese encephalitis,yellow fever and Zika contribute significantly to health problems of developing as well as developed nations.Vector control is central to control of vector borne diseases.In the last four-five decades,biological control methods have been inducted in the integrated vector management strategy,advocated nationally as well as globally by the World Health Organization.Currently,biological control of vectors is globally acknowledged as the best available strategy in the wake of growing concerns about vector resistance as well as adverse effects of insecticides on the environment and non-target fauna co-inhabiting the same ecological niches as vectors.In India and elsewhere,efforts are ongoing to screen newer isolates to bring forth new biolarvicidal products of public health importance.In this review,by carrying out extensive literature survey,we discuss advances thus far and the prospects of bacilli-based control of vectors and vector borne diseases.
