Abstract: The problem of vector borne insects is a reality that attracts public health attention due to the role of such insects in transmitting diseases that affect all layers of society. At this juncture, different approaches have been developed over time in order to deal with the issue. Although infrastructure demands, such as basic sanita- tion, are directly linked to the population density of insect vectors, direct control measures such as insecticide application have been prioritized. Products based on microbial agents have proved to be of great value for the control of insect vectors, since they present great advantages over chemical products, such as high specificity, which results in a smaller impact on the environment. In this context, the bacteria of the genus Bacillus stand out as viable candidates, with real possibilities of large- scale production. Here we present a historical and current overview of the use of microbial products based on Bacillus spp. For the control of the main Brazilian public health targets: Aedes spp., Anopheles spp., Culex spp. And Simuliids. © Springer International Publishing AG 2017.
