Study of the flight habits of the anopheline mosquitoes is of paramount importance in planning control measures. The radius of flight or dispersion has been studied since the early days of antimosquito work and has been the concern of most mosquito workers at some time. This study is important because the distance the mosquito can fly determines the limits to which a given breeding place is dangerous and sets the distance to which antianopheline work must be carried out if a given point is to be protected from disease.
