Evaluation of public information packets for source reduction in three socioeconomic areas of Tampa, Florida.
Three surveys of 3 distinct socioeconomic areas (low, medium, and high) for artificial containers infested with mosquitoes were conducted in Tampa, FL, during June-August 1992.
The 3 socioeconomic areas were further subdivided into 2 groups : those receiving literature explaining the cultural control practice of removing artificial containers as mosquito developmental sites, and those given no literature.
A significant reduction in the number of positive premises having containers with mosquito development was noted only in the low income area.
Reductions in the number of mosquito positive bromeliads were seen in the high and middle income areas.
