Research Project: ARS AREAWIDE PEST MANAGEMENT (AWPM) PROGRAM FOR THE ASIAN TIGER MOSQUITO Project Number: 0500-00044-022-00
Project Type: Appropriated

Start Date: Oct 15, 2007
End Date: Oct 14, 2012

Objective:
(1) Demonstrate a strategy for area-wide Aedes albopictus control; (2) demonstrate the public health importance and socio-economic benefits of area-wide mosquito control; and (3) transfer the strategy to end-users of the technology.

Approach:
Will establish and implement an areawide pest management research and action program for Asian tiger mosquito management which (a) results from a stakeholder partnership and collaboration dedicated to the demonstration and areawide adoption of Asian tiger mosquito control technologies and (b) achieves an Asian tiger mosquito management system so end-users, consultants and other interested parties will be left with an affordable program. This will require the development of a multidisciplinary approach between Federal, State, local and private interests, and whose participants will be involved in the program from conception to adoption.
