A mathematical model is presented to examine the interaction between human and vector populations. The model consists of five control strategies i.e. campaign aimed in educating careless individuals as a mean of minimizing or eliminating mosquito-human contact, control effort aimed at reducing mosquito-human contact, the control effort for removing vector breeding places, insecticide application and the control effort aimed at reducing the maturation rate from larvae to adult in order to reduce
