Our pest mosquito control course has been designed as an introductory class to aid those preparing to sit for the NJDEP category 8B exam. This information meets the needs of public and private employees looking to obtain a pesticide applicators license for mosquito abatement.

This course will consist of a 1/2 day classroom session where applicable category specific information will be reviewed. Students are encouraged to actively participate in the session in an attempt to reinforce information necessary for workers employed in mosquito abatement operations and likely to be tested during a written examination of the topic.

Lecture Topics Include:

  • Pest identification of larval and adult stages
  • Mosquito biology, life cycle and larval habitats
  • Mosquitoes as vectors of disease
  • Methods of mosquito surveillance
  • Methods of controlling mosquitoes
  • Public relations and notification
  • Ticks, description and biology

This training effort will be coordinated through the Office of Continuing Professional Education, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, in the Center for Vector Biology at Rutgers University.
