Abstract
Diseases caused by arboviruses inflict an enormous drain on world health, and significantly manipulate commercial interests. For instance, dengue and other mosquito-borne viruses unaided are liable for more than a million mortalities on a yearly basis. With the recent emergence and re-emergence of vector borne viral disease, many individuals have been doubtful that established control procedures, such as using pesticides and insect repellants for durable periods will no longer be effective. Moreover, persistent use of insecticide has led to worries of undesirable ecological consequences, and worthy of note is increased resistance of these vectors to insecticides. Consequently, the necessity for a different and novel ecologically friendly biological control strategy has been proposed to balance existing insect control methods.

Keywords: Control, Dengue virus, Health, Insecticide, Mosquito, Viral disease
