Abstract

Ultra low volume (ULV) ground application of technical malathion as a supplementary malaria control measure was carried out in two riverine villages of South Arcot district, Tamil Nadu which had high persistent transmission since 1975. Malaria incidence was reduced to one fifth in villages under ULV malathion as against a 50% drop in the control village. The cost of ULV spray alone came to Rs. 1.07 per capita per year. ULV can be an effective supplementary measure in rural areas with specific problems.
