Mosquitoes: Scientists say they have invented a new method to kill mosquitoes. Scientists who have examined a new approach to killing malaria-causing mosquitoes say it has been successful. What experiments did Swedish scientists. Mosquitoes are given poisonous beet juice. It is like human blood. This kills the mosquitoes that drink it.
The experiment was carried out by a Swedish company called Molecular Attraction. The company says it is currently difficult to control mosquitoes, but the new experiment will make it easier to reduce the number of mosquitoes that spread malaria.
How did the mosquitoes die, how many types of mosquitoes is this experiment effective on as well as what is the malaria situation in the world? Find out the answers to these questions
HMBPP molecule found in the blood of malaria patients. This molecule gives off a kind of odor. Because of this they are attracted to mosquitoes. As a result, mosquitoes that enter humans drink more human blood. Scientists have used this feature to defeat mosquitoes. For this, the HMBPP molecule extracted from the plant, a special toxin is added to the beet juice.
After making this mixture, the mosquitoes were attracted towards it. Drink plenty of this fluid. After a while all the mosquitoes that drank it died.
Does not attract other species of insects
The unique feature of the HMBPP molecule is that it does not attract other insects. Therefore it can be used to repel mosquitoes. Compared to other harmful pesticides, this mixture requires very small amounts to kill mosquitoes. This mixture does not work for diseases like Zika, West Nile virus, dengue, yellow fever.
Efforts to stop malaria continue. Efforts are underway to prevent malaria worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) launched the world’s first malaria vaccine on October 7. It is manufactured by the pharma company GlaxoSmithKline. This vaccine is especially applicable to people in areas of Africa where malaria cases are high.
According to the WHO, the cause of malaria is a parasite called Plasmodium falciparum. It infects mosquitoes. When an infected Anopheles mosquito bites a man, the parasite reaches the human and he fights malaria. Common symptoms of malaria are fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, and nausea.
Malaria causes 4 million deaths worldwide each year. According to the World Malaria Report 2020, 90 percent of malaria deaths occur in Africa, with more than 265,000 children. There were 7,36,000 malaria cases reported in 2000, down from 4,11,000 by 2018. In 2019, 4,09,000 malaria cases were reported.
