'Covering of ponds, clearing of drainage system, conducting of anti-mosquito spray regularly in addition with use of dress that covers whole body and installing of nets on windows and entrances before going to sleep are the main prevention necessary to curtain the Sand fly
breeding and halt to spread of the disease', Dr Razeq maintained.

research related to leishmaniasis control," Parasites & Vectors, vol.
The four-year old-filly made a winning start to her career in a bumper for Michael Hourigan.
There are important points that need to be considered while dealing with sand flies (Diptera: Psychodidae: Phlebotominae), which in many regions worldwide, particularly in tropical and subtropical areas, are vectors of diseases such as leishmaniasis and sand fly
fever and are the arthropods of the infection cycle.
This placed them at risk for sand fly
bites, as sand flies are most active in twilight, evening, and nighttime hours."
Besides contributing with essential reviews and discussions to the field of leishmaniasis [22-25], he participated in seminal works related to the most diverse topics related to this neglected tropical disease, including transmission by midges in Australia , insecticide use and resistance in sandflies [27-30], role of chickens [31, 32], dogs [33, 34], and plants [35, 36] in the maintenance of vectors and parasite life cycle, taxonomic description of new sand fly
species [37, 38], sand fly
sex pheromones [39, 40], RNAi in sand flies , and biological control of sand flies .
In Africa and Asia (Figure 1), the peridomestic species bite insatiably and also are of major public health concern in many parts of the world, particularly in the Old World, where they are capable of transmitting pathogens, including protozoans (Leishmania) and viruses (Phleboviruses, sand fly
Phlebotomine sand flies are responsible for transmission of several human diseases, including bartonellosis, leishmaniasis and sand fly
fever viruses in many parts of the world (Service, 1996).
KARAK -- The most dangerous and neglected tropical disease causes by from a bite of an infected sand fly
affected as many as 987 people from January 2016 till August, as per the record of District Health Department.
October 13, 2014 (JUBA) -- Over 150 people in South Sudan have died from Kala-azar, a disease transmitted through sand fly
bites, the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a report.
This year's World Health Day, Vector-Borne Diseases, is a campaign to raise awareness about the threat of vector-borne common diseases such as mosquitoes, sand fly
, bugs, ticks, snails, which spread dengue and yellow fever, etc.
These microscopic organisms infect humans through the bite of a female blood-feeding sand fly
carrying infective parasites in its gut.
