Research Reveals That Swatting Mosquitoes Are Actually Effective

There are some doubts to the efficacy of swatting away mosquitoes to stop them from biting people. For those doubting swatting and are looking to buy some Deet free repellent in Australia or wherever they are, they might want to hold off, as a new research has learned that swatting might actually be an effective deterrent for mosquitoes.

The study has learned that mosquitoes are capable of associating a specific odour with unpleasant experience and/or trauma, for example; being swatted, which means that they’ll avoid the source of a particular scent if they associate it with something they want to avoid.

The research was done by team from Seattle’s University of Washington, lead by Jeffrey Riffellatthe, who says that the mosquitoes they tested on remember the training odours associated with shock for days. Additionally, the research learned that mosquitoes don’t randomly select their victims, showing preference for certain targets over others.  Notably, mosquitoes also alternate victims based on the season, preferring certain birds and mammals during certain parts of the year, and other mammals and poisons during the other seasons of the year.

The research team wanted to learn as much as they could about mosquito biting habits, in order to learn what people can do to influence them. The first step of the research involved shocking the mosquitoes in order to associate the smell of a certain person or species with the shock. The insects quickly associated the smells to the shock, and then they adjusted their flight paths.

Learning in a lot of animals, humans included, depends on the hormone of dopamine. The research also learned that even mosquitoes were reliant on this hormone. This discovery was made by gluing mosquitoes to a custom holder that allowed for the analysis of the neurons in their brains’ olfactory centres, noting that without dopamine the neurons that mosquitoes needed to learn odour information were less likely to activate.

Riffell says that this research and the data can help scientists understand how mosquitoes choose their targets, in order to influence these behaviours for the development of better and more efficient tools for mosquito controls, especially since people are flocking to Deet free repellent in Australia and across the world and other new methods to avoid mosquitoes.

Final Rule Set By EPA Could Impact Manufacturers

There are governing bodies that regulate chemical manufacturers such as Global Chemical Manufacturer to ensure that they are following safety and quality procedures. In the United States, the EPA or Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for these tasks. The agency is currently deciding their fourth as well as their final rule in order to improve the safety standard in chemical manufacturing industry. This is not good news for manufacturers and distributors of petroleum and chemical products though as they could be paying over $20 million on a yearly basis.

The bill which is currently being revamped is the Toxic Substances Control Act also known as TSCA which proposes a fee about $20.05 million annually. The fee will be imposed on companies that are manufacturing, importing, processing or distributing chemical substances. The fees will also affect the coal and petroleum industry as well as wholesalers.

According to the rule, the total amount of the fee excludes the fees that are collected for risk evaluations under the request of the manufacturer. The proposed rule will start imposing the yearly fees beginning in October.

The EPA added that the fee is intended to help the agency cover costs incurred during TSCA and a portion will be allotted for the TSCA Service Fee Fund which is managed by the United States Treasury. With the fees, the agency will be able to implement its legal obligations because it has a sustainable source to depend on. The agency will be able to perform various activities including screenings based on risks, determining if the substances are low or high priority and performing risk 5 evaluations when a substance is suspected to have a negative impact on the environment and human health.

Scott Pruitt, the administrator of EPA, said that the fee will make sure that the highest standards will be followed when conducting the TSCA. EPA is currently making the process efficient so that the amendment can be completed as soon as possible. The fees will help the agency get the resources they need in order to conduct reviews on safety of chemicals.

The result is yet to be come out in the following weeks. It will affect chemical manufacturers in the United States but not Global Chemical Manufacturer which is based in Thailand.
