Abstract: Mosquitoes have stood for centuries as one of the most dangerous insects in the world. Although not all mosquitoes indeed cause disease, and not all infections are life-threatening, those that are harmful require serious concern. Many countries face the initial outbreak of mosquito-borne diseases, and before it’s too late, it is wise to be precautious and embrace the best mosquito control measures. Pesticides are chemical or biological substances used to kill or repel targeted organisms. All pesticides are poisons. Usage of the pesticides are causing harmful effects on public health and especially children’s health is affected much compare to adults. Therefore, implementation of the public health pesticide provisions must include substantial comparative risk-benefit analyses of the significance of mosquito borne disease impacts versus potential human especially children and environmental toxic effects of pesticides used to control public health pests.
