Chemical poisons can be used in the control of pests and vectors. The term “poison” is very broad, referring to practically any chemical that can produce. EPA, the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture do not envision that this list of pests of significant public health importance will remain static.

It is possible in the future, as there are new discoveries concerning the roles of species in spreading disease, that this list may need to be changed. Vector control is any method to limit or eradicate the mammals, birds, insects or other arthropods (here collectively called "vectors") which transmit disease most frequent type of vector control is mosquito control using a variety of strategies.

Several of the "neglected tropical diseases" are spread by such vectors. Chemical control of vectors using pesticides is a key element in the fight against vector-borne diseases. When used properly and as part of Integrated Vector Management (IVM) framework, pesticides can effectively and safely control disease-transmitting pest populations and prevent potential outbreaks.

Pests such as vectors (mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, etc.), other insects, rodents and microbes can cause and spread diseases that pose serious risks to public health. There are a variety of ways you can control pests and the risks they pose.

Instead of targeting only the vector or vectors of dengue, there may be opportunities to integrate Aedes control with control of pests or vectors of other diseases. Addressing two or more public health problems simultaneously may improve cost-effectiveness and may help promote public acceptance and involvement in the programme.
