To field test insecticide spray equipment and insecticides which will provide a significant capability enhancement over the status quo tool set.
Will utilize established field sites in Thailand to test and evaluate critical spray equipment and insecticides for the control of mosquitoes that transmit dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever viruses. Monitoring mosquito population levels before and after control operations at each site will determine effectiveness of each control intervention. The most effective sprayer and insecticide combination will be determined to affect necessary changes to fielded equipment.
