Mosquitoes and Architecture
Hi Furqan,


If you are talking about a typical dwelling unit, or small building with cross ventilation through doors and windows-then double doors and windows with one made of glass and the other one with Chicken mesh, Polymer mesh etc., is a common solution. However, it impacts wind movement to significant extent, as I observed.

avoid any stagnant water at or near th building to prevent anopheles (tranfering maleria)from breeding.
That is why buildings in the tropics should not have roof gutters, as there is usually some stagnant water.
And there are the good old fly screens, but they must be really tight.
