Biological Control of Mosquito Populations Through Frogs: Opportunities & Constrains (Report)

The use of frogs and tadpoles for disease vector control is still largely unexplored. Frogs are an important part of the ecosystem with a role for insect and pest control including mosquitoes. Available information suggests the existence of many direct and indirect factors affecting the growth and survival of both prey and predators. Other controphic species that have influence on this relationship also show considerable effect. Still, the associations of different prey and predator relationships in the environment to assess the feasibility of use of a species as biocontrol agent for vector control and management. However, frogs cannot be used as an independent intervention for disease vector control and more research is needed to use them effectively for mosquito control. Key words Frog–mosquito–tadpole–vector control
