Caption

Vector control technician Genzel Joel Ramos records data during a home visit in Danli, Honduras, to help prevent Zika through control of mosquito breeding. The Aedes aegypti mosquito transmits Zika, as well as Chikungunya and Dengue, two other tropical diseases spread by the bites of infected mosquitoes. USAID’s ZAP vector control project is part of a strategy to prevent the spread of Zika. Vector control specialists educate local residents to reduce standing water, check the open-air wash basin, test for mosquito larvae, and then apply Vectobac, a biological larvicide manufactured in the U.S., to the water in the basin.
