Abstract

Objective: The current study was carried out in Kashan, central Iran, to find and interpret the factors which influence the mosquito and sand fly biting on human body. Methodology: In this study five hundred residential houses were selected and checked out to determine the frequencies of mosquito and sand fly biting in the different regions of Kashan. Results: Results of this study showed that 64.6 of the family residents, who took part in this study, were bitten by means of the insects (Culicidae and Phlebotominae insects) over one year. Conclusion: The Diptera insect biting (Culicidae and Phlebotominae) is a multi-factor activity. By knowing these factors we can make plan to reduce the insect population using different tools and methods which are discussed in this study.
