From Beat the Bites: Mosquito Research and Management
November 23, 2019
We need to do all we can to protect our urban wildlife but what if the ways we do that increases mosquito risk? PhD candidate Jayne Hanford will be presenting the results of her research at the Ecological Society of Australia conference in Tasmania.
Mosquitoes can share their aquatic habitats with many other animals.
The 2019 Ecological Society of Australia conference will be held in Tasmania, 24-29 November. The conference theme, “Ecology: science for practical solutions”, is closely aligned with much of the work my collaborators and myself undertake each summer. We’re trying to ensure that recommendations on managing the pest and public health risks associated with mosquitoes is informed by the best available science.
Practical solutions to the challenges of balancing mosquito management while also ensuring positive outcomes from the environment too.
