Research Project: Spatial Repellent Products for Protection of Individual and Garrisoned Soldiers from Biting Arthropods

Location: Mosquito and Fly Research

Project Number: 6036-32000-052-016-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2021
End Date: Sep 30, 2022

To develop 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 CMAVE in small cages, semi-field cages and against natural populations at local field study sites.
