Global Mosquito Control Resistance Virtual Summit 3-24-2022

The summit on “Global Mosquito Resistance Management ” held virtually on Thursday, March 24, 2022.

This global knowledge exchange summit will focus on the topic of pesticide resistance across the globe.
Presentations will include information on:

  • types of resistance mechanisms
  • resistance trends from the USA, Africa, Latin America, and Asia
  • alternate vector control tools to combat resistance
  • resistance management best practices, and
  • recent field work from those battling with resistance in local mosquito populations
