The Anastasia Mosquito Control District of St. Johns County, Florida, is working in collaboration with the Department of Defense Deployed Warfighter Program (DWFP) to better understand action thresholds which are used to make operational control decisions for mitigating nuisance and vector mosquitoes.  The overarching goal will be to identify key thresholds used by mosquito control and preventative medicine units to understand the minimum criteria needed to develop evidence-based action thresholds for mosquito control where troops are deployed.

AMCD is asking for mosquito programs to fill out the preliminary survey. Data generated from this preliminary survey will be essential to the Department of Defense goals of creating forecast tools for when nuisance and vector control should be initiated in military operational environments. This survey is estimated to take approximately five to seven (5-7) minutes to complete.
