Caption: DDT insecticide for malaria control. Footage of soldiers in the 1940s spraying the insecticide DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) as part of malaria control. This footage shows the most efficient methods of spraying DDT, as used by malaria control teams. DDT affects the nervous systems and motor coordination of insects such as mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are the vector for malaria transmission. Preventing mosquitoes from breeding is one of the ways used to control the spread of malaria. One of the insecticides commonly used, until it was banned, was DDT. This footage is from a military training film produced in 1944 by the US Navy.
