The mission of National Program 104 (NP 104) is to improve the protection of humans and livestock from blood-sucking arthropods, and from stinging, or otherwise damaging insects. NP 104 research is divided into three components: (1) Medical entomology for the public and military; (2) Veterinary entomology; and (3) Fire ants and other invasive ant pests. Forty permanent scientists in 13 projects conduct translational and applied research under these components to mitigate the impact of arthropods such as ticks, mosquitoes, sand flies, stable flies, biting midges, and bed bugs. Non-biting flies such as house flies, filth flies, and New World screwworms are also the targets of this research effort as are stinging, invasive ants. The ultimate goal is to protect humans and livestock from these arthropod pests, through the development of safe and effective methods of management and control.
