In Marigat, Kenya, Kenneth Linthicum, the director of ARS’s Center for Medical, Agricultural, and Veterinary Entomology in Gainesville, Florida, calibrates a thermal fogger in preparation for experimental applications of aerosol pesticides to control sand flies. The trials at Marigat use both ultra-low-volume and thermal fog equipment and a variety of EPA-labeled pesticides and are the first of their kind in providing critical information to better target sand flies in hot, arid locations.
