Malaria among adults especially younger adults should deserve more attention in the areas where malaria was previously endemic as they became vulnerable probably because of the partial acquisition and—or—the loss of anti-Plasmodium relative immunity and the non regular use of LLINs.

The per capita costs for larval source management interventions with Bti are roughly a third of the annual per capita expenditures for anti-malarial drugs and those for LLINs in Burkina Faso which are US$ 3.80 and 3.00, respectively.

Malaria vector control currently relies almost exclusively on killing adult mosquitoes with chemical insecticides. Insecticide-treated nets (ITNs), long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs), and indoor residual sprays (IRS) aim to repel, disable, and/or kill mosquitoes on contact.
