Presented by:
Christopher Bibbs
of the Anastasia Mosquito Control District

Abstract: Spatial repellents are a broad category of volatile compounds that repel mosquitoes. However, they are misunderstood and underappreciated as a tool, and consequently still experience require research and development. They are shelf partners with topical repellents, and even have benefits topical repellents cannot claim. But do these tools possess utility for vector management? This talk will review what spatial repellents are, the various forms they come in, and the functions they have that could contribute to effective integrated mosquito management. This will be followed by review of the usage strategies, and the notable drawbacks in their function and successful integration into mosquito control to date.
