MORE ON DENGUE FEVER, here and here. And here’s a map showing re-infestation since the end of DDT. On the other hand, in response to my post yesterday a UT entomologist and InstaPundit reader emails: “Few, if any, of my entomological colleagues advocate the return of DDT for controlling mosquitoes. There are a variety of other insecticides that are quite able to fill the bill ( without the hysteria associated with any mention of DDT).”

Meanwhile, another reader sends this on DDT.
