Spatio-temporal impacts of aerial adulticide applications on populations of West Nile virus vector mosquitoes
Aerial applications of insecticides that target adult mosquitoes are widely used to reduce transmission of WNV to humans during periods of epidemic risk. However, estimates of the reduction in abundance following these treatments typically focus on single events, rely on pre-defined, untreated control sites and can vary widely due to stochastic variation in population dynamics and trapping success unrelated to the treatment. In a new study, UC Davis PhD student Karen M. Holcomb and PacVec investigator Dr. Chris Barker collaborated with Dr. Bobby Reiner of the University of Washington to develop statistical methods that estimated the effects of aerial adulticiding using 12 years of surveillance and control data provided by the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District. Estimates showed reductions in abundance of Culex pipiens and Culex tarsalis following aerial spray events, with differences in the effects depending on the temporal sequence and spatial coverage of recent treatments [full article].

The Anastasia Mosquito Control District of St. Johns County, Florida, is collaborating with the Department of Defense Deployed Warfighter Program (DWFP) to better understand action thresholds which are used to make operational control decisions for mitigating nuisance and vector mosquitoes. The overarching goal will be to identify key thresholds used by mosquito control and preventive medicine units to understand the minimum criteria needed to develop evidence-based action thresholds for mosquito control where troops are deployed. Anastasia Mosquito Control asks for your valuable input on this subject by completing a short preliminary survey on behalf of your control program. If you have any questions about this survey or research, please feel free to contact project PI Whitney Qualls at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CDC Rickettsial Zoonoses Branch is starting a new MALDI-TOF Tick ID project
The Rickettsial Zoonoses Branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is partnering with various US-based and international universities and public health agencies to develop a robust, protein-based platform for identification and characterization of tick species of medical and veterinary importance, with applications for surveillance and scientific activities in the United States and other countries in the Western Hemisphere. We are currently seeking collaborators to provide recently collected (2017- present), field-caught specimens of Amblyomma americanum, Amblyomma maculatum, Dermacentor variabilis, Dermacentor andersoni, Ixodes scapularis, and Ixodes pacificus.
