    About This Project

    Mosquito habitat expansion has allowed for their reintroduction in the South. There is an increasing rate of insecticide-resistant populations, largely due to genetic and environmental adaptations. The goal of this project is to go to unserviced field sites and set field traps in each site. The mosquitoes collected will be characterized at local mosquito control offices. From our samples, I will produce a report stating the gender and species of the mosquitoes.

    Blast off!
