Pesticide Resistance Training
Dr. Janet McAllister of the CDC came to Suffolk, Virginia on January 26, 2018 to teach a workshop on the bottle bioassay method for determining pesticide resistance in local mosquito populations. Several jurisdictions were present for the training including Chesapeake, Fairfax County, Hampton, Henrico County, Langley Air Force Base, Newport News, Norfolk, Prince William County, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, and York County. Please read the article in the 2018 WinterSpring edition of The Skeeter for a summary of the workshop. The following are some important documents related to the training for anyone interested in conducting this testing within their jurisdiction.
