The Buzz on Mosquitoes: Mosquito Bite Prevention (Online)

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Click here to join us on Zoom on the day of!

Mosquitoes are among the deadliest animals on the planet. But, only a small fraction of our 50+ mosquito species serve as human disease vectors. Many mosquitoes play critical roles in healthy ecosystem functioning.

Unfortunately, low natural diversity in human-modified landscapes favors some species over others. In addition, our behaviors and attitudes may put us at risk of bites. Mosquitoes are often the prime targets in land/water management and pesticide use and misuse. However, understanding vector biology holds the key to preventing disease. Join our workshop! We’ll review the latest research on mosquito bite prevention, as well as bust any myths along the way.

Topics to be covered:

  • Mysteries behind mosquito biology and ecology
  •  How diseases are cycled in the environment between animals and humans
  • Empowering protection methods based on science

 

Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.
