End Date: Aug 30, 2020
To assist in the development of novel passive delivery devices of spatial repellents for the protection of individual and garrisoned U.S. military soldiers from biting arthropods.
Transfluthrin (TF) treated military bootlaces and custom designed tent entrance protective devices constructed from TF-containing multi-lumen polymer tubes will be evaluated. These studies will be conducted with colony reared species of mosquitoes at Center for Medical, Agricultural and Veterinary Entomology (CMAVE) in small cages, semi-field cages and against natural populations at local field study sites.
