The biopesticides Bti and Bacillus sphaericus (Bs) are commercially available and are being used to control mosquitoes all over the world (Lacey, 2007). , Chapter 5, this volume). For all disease control strategies, components of an IVM programme should be chosen on merit. Factors relating to costeffectiveness, efficiency, environmental impact and the specific local situation need to be considered (Lacey and Orr, 1994; WHO, 2004). At present, the only arthropods that fulfil the necessary requirements to be intentionally integrated into an IVM programme are copepod predators (Kay and Nam, 2005).
