Image Number D2643-1

At a remote patrol base in Iraq, ARS scientist and U.S. Army medical entomologist Seth Britch applies a residual treatment of lambdacyhalothrin to camouflage netting and shade cloth that will be suspended over outdoor eating and cooking areas and over areas in between dormitories. This residual pesticide treatment reduces populations of biting flies and mosquitoes by transferring lethal doses to the insects when they rest on the camouflage material while seeking human hosts.
