Technical Abstract: The Mosquito and Fly Research Unit of the USDA-ARS Center for Medical, Agricultural and Veterinary Entomology located in Gainesville Florida is the largest Federal laboratory devoted to specifically solving operational mosquito and fly surveillance and control challenges in the U.S. and internationally. Utilizing a team of very experienced and well-respected scientists and technical staff, a well developed laboratory facility and associated infrastructure, and a widespread network of collaborators throughout the world the Unit focuses on a well established sequence of laboratory, semi-field and field research to accurately and rapidly answer the operational challenges posed by hundreds of stakeholders. We describe examples of (1) surveillance and control challenges, (2) the development of research strategies to meet these challenges, (3) the conduct of research, (4) the products and technologies developed, and (5) the transfer of products and technologies to Mosquito and Fly Control Operators and Operations.
