The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) have worked together to provide the first comprehensive volume of resources to control mosquito control in areas hit by natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods in this special edition of the Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association (JAMCA).
Hurricanes have been linked to several public health concerns, including rapid increases in mosquito populations that can disrupt recovery efforts and lead to an increased risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile.
Effective mosquito control after a natural disaster can help communities recover faster and avoid potential infectious disease outbreaks from endemic viruses such as West Nile. The resources in this issue will provide information to local and government agencies to help prepare for and respond to natural disasters related to mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases.
In this special edition, you’ll find examples, research, and real-world lessons from authors representing federal and state agencies, mosquito control programs and health departments in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas, research organizations, and the military.
