Why participate in this training: Monitoring insecticide resistance (IR) is an important component of truly integrated pest management programs. The larval bioassay technique(s) demonstrated in this course are an extension of prior years training, simple and relatively inexpensive to perform.

Topics include: Rationale, review of the materials needed, safe lab practices, micropipetting, preparation of stock solutions and serial dilutions, bioassay set up, dosing cups, scoring mortality, entering data, running Polo Plus® and interpreting results.

Goals: Build on the two previous classes. Provide supervised hands on forum for initial insecticide efficacy trials through standard larval bioassays. Establish baseline susceptibility values on local fauna. Aid mosquito control programs in monitoring insecticide resistance in a consistent and comparable manner. Generate baseline data to monitor local mosquito populations that can be shared with neighboring programs, the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, state, and federal agencies.

A certificate will be provided to each participant who successfully completes the training.
