ARS-FLA, Inc. will build a prototype AC-DC EPG monitor, based on designs provided by EPG Equipment Co. ARS-FLA, Inc. will send the prototype to ARS, Parlier, CA., for evaluation of its effectiveness in recording feeding behavior of 2-3 representative species of piercing-sucking insect vectors. The ARS scientist will write a report, and iteratively test modified designs (if necessary) until a working, marketable monitor is completed.
