Here's a fine Walt Disney Production from 1943 about the Anopheles genus of mosquitos and how it transmits the Plasmodium parasite from human to human. Our heros in this "motion picture" are the seven dwarfs who use a variety of methods to eliminate the "winged scourge." One not-so-green method is to spray oil in the water areas Anopheles breeds in. Another, is to spray the poison Paris Green in their breeding environment.
