Technical Abstract: This technical guide consolidates information and procedures for surveillance and control of mosquitoes that transmit dengue and chikungunya viruses. The guide focuses on mosquitoes that transmit dengue but also makes reference to chikungunya and yellow fever because the pathogens that cause these diseases may be transmitted by the same mosquito species. Thus, control of dengue vectors will also control the spread of these diseases. This guide provides guidance to those individuals responsible for conducting pest control and surveillance during military deployments. The guide will receive periodic review and will be updated to ensure that information presented reflects current technology and guidance.
