Title:A Study of the Malarial Mosquitoes of Southern Illinois II. Operations of 1920
Author(s):Chandler, S.C.
Southern Illinois
Abstract:The mosquito survey of southern Illinois, which was begun by the author in the spring of 1918, has been carried forward during the season of 1920 at Herrin, Williamson county, and vicinity. The object of the work, as fully explained in a former article of the Natural History Survey Division, is to locate the places which breed mosquitoes, to point out what types of location are especially favorable to the production of the malaria mosquitoes, and to increase our knowledge of the seasonal occurrence of all mosquito species to be found in southern Illinois. It is hoped that these articles will provide data of use to citizens of communities interested in a reduction of malaria disease through a control of the mosquitoes transmitting it. It is planned to continue the survey, each year in a different locality typical of some considerable area, so that eventually all types will be covered.
