Crab shell spray may help prevent malaria A spray made from crab shells and silver nanoparticles may curb the spread of malaria-carrying mosquitoes, say scientists who tested the environment friendly solution successfully in India. "The solution can be employed at low dosages to strongly reduce populations of the malaria vector, the Anopheles sundaicus mosquito without detrimental effects on the predation of natural mosquito enemies, such as goldfishes," said Jiang-Shiou Hwang of the National Taiwan Ocean University. Researchers took chitosan or chitin, a non-toxic natural substance that is found in the exoskeletons of arthropods. Researchers first crushed and oven-dried the exoskeletons of a number crabs before extracting chitin and other minerals. The subsequent creamy-white filtrate was then mixed with silver nitrate to obtain a brown-yellow solution of silver nanoparticles.

Maintain cleanliness, eliminate Malaria: Rai 12.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Forest and District In-charge Minister BRamanath Rai said if people wish, they can eliminate Malaria completely in the district by maintaining cleanliness.
