cover: The use of DDT is regulated by the Stockholm Convention and in many countries its use in agriculture has been banned completely. However, to control and avert malaria epidemics which is spread by mosquitos, DDT is still an acceptable pesticide in some regions of Africa and India. Mosquito control using additional ecological strategies such as eliminating mosquito breeding grounds by drainage or introducing fish to eat larvae is also advocated. Read more about the Stockholm Convention as a tool for the global regulation of persistent organic pollutants page 4.
