An article by Bernard Coetzee, a senior lecturer at the University of Pretoria argues for the use of artificial lights to trick malaria-transmitting mosquito species that feed nocturnally into behaving as if it’s daytime, and thereby deterring feeding, and helping to keep people safe from malaria-carrying mosquito bites. Coetzee however cautions in the article, which can be read on the News Blog page of the Future Media website that demonstrating the effects of artificial light in controlled laboratory settings is one thing, but rolling out their use as an effective vector control strategy is quite another.
