Wing Beats

Wing Beats is an operational trade magazine, published quarterly and is written and produced mainly by operational people. Its main intention is to keep all interested parties informed on matters as they relate to mosquito control and to disseminate information to help educate and raise the level of the mosquito control profession both nationwide and internationally.

Although the vast majority of articles are mosquito related, we do consider articles related to other vectors and their associated diseases (ie. ticks, fleas, sand flies).

Wing Beats is published quarterly each year by the Florida Mosquito Control Association. AMCA Members receive Wing Beats as an additional member benefit.

Wing Beats' Editor-in-Chief is Dennis Moore.
