CDC and the American Mosquito Management Affiliation are working collectively on preliminary complete sources for mosquito management in catastrophe areas


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) have partnered to provide the first comprehensive volume of resources to control mosquito control in areas hit by natural disasters like hurricanes and floods in this special edition of the Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association (JAMCA). Hurricanes are 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 mosquitos and mosquito-borne diseases.

Find examples, research, and real-world lessons in this special edition from authors representing federal and state agencies, mosquito control programs and health departments in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas, research organizations, and the military.

The special edition can be found here:
