VIDEO: PestExtra: Novel Mosquito Control Techniques To Combat Mosquito Borne Infections

Mosquito transmitted diseases continue to increase their incidence and geographical locations and it is therefore more important than ever to develop effective control methods.

Factors such as increased insecticide resistance and environmental impact have driven a need for novel control strategies such as sterile insect technique (SIT), use of the bacteria Wolbachia, release of insects with dominant lethality (RIDL) and gene drives.

Presented by Dr Claire Donald, University of Glasgow.

This presentation premiered at PestExtra 2021: the pest management show online. 

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) hosts these free events so everyone interested in pest management can learn, share and connect.

This video is intended for those working in the pest management sector.
