A Manual of Mosquito Control Projects and Committee Assignments for 4-H and Scouts Biology Class Projects, Organized Community Service Programs, and Individuals Interested in Environmental Management.
Hart, Richard A.
The mosquito control projects presented in this manual were prepared from an educational viewpoint and are intended for use by students in 4-H and Scouts and as a supplement to high school and college biology course work. The major emphasis of the projects is on integrated pest management, an approach utilizing cost-effective control methods which minimize environmental and health risks. Projects are organized into three sections: (1) "Getting Organized Projects," which are primarily educational or recreational and when taken collectively contribute toward reducing the numbers of mosquitoes; (2) "Control Projects," including map making, breeding site location and plotting, and collecting and identifying flying mosquitoes; and (3) "Research Projects," fostering the development of better control methods for local conditions by emphasizing the sampling of mosquito populations in such a way that meaningful descriptions and predictions can be made of the effects of control methods.
