This is a Community IPM, Joint Research-Extension project to address the control of the invasive vector mosquito Aedes albopictus (the Asian tiger mosquito) in urban residential environments. The Asian tiger mosquito is responsible for most complaints to mosquito control programs. These programs rely on controversial and ineffective area-wide applications of broad-spectrum adulticides to combat this mosquito. While larvicides work effectively, it is impractical if not impossible to identify and treat all sources by hand. Without any efficient means of control, many mosquito control programs ignore this pest.
