Mosquito control and mosquito-borne disease prevention are not the same. Mosquito control involves reducing populations of mosquitoes, which might possibly lead to a reduction in the number of mosquito bites in a given area. Mosquito-borne disease prevention involves personal protection – wearing mosquito repellent. So, what is the difference between the two? With mosquito control, preventing every mosquito bite is not the goal; with mosquito-borne disease prevention, individuals take responsibility to protect themselves from any mosquito bite.
The devices and services discussed here are not a means of disease prevention; these products are used for mosquito control.
