Dr. Brian Johnson’s departmental seminar is this Friday – be there or (boooo…)

Brian will give the Entomology Departmental Seminar this Friday, October 13 in Thompson Hall, Room 206 (11am-12noon). The title is “Advances in Vector Control Science: Rear and Release Strategies Show Promise…But Don’t Forget the Basics.”

Brian will provide an insider’s view of some of the newer strategies for area-wide control of invasive Aedes mosquitoes, which can vector dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever. He will discuss Wolbachia driven population replacement and sterile male techniques. As well as how many students are needed to blood feed a mosquito factory. Not to be missed! Perfect for Halloween! (coffee and donuts provided)
