Heather Ward is a #SpeciesIdentification expert in our Colorado lab. A love of #entomology runs deep in her family. To support her brother’s undergraduate #ResearchProject, Heather recently “donated” blood to a colony of #Aedes #aegypti at MSU Denver.

Look what a VDCI Team Member discovered in her child's coloring book! With our team and partners across the country, we’re glad the little artist chose colors to represent both sides playing in the #BigGame. We’re also glad mom added the missing legs.

Thank you, #California! We were grateful for the opportunity to attend the MVCAC's 86th Annual Conference, see old friends, and provide details to districts on VDCI's services on the ground as well as in the air!

Field Technician, Mayumi Smyers was an ace at locating the habitats of #Culex larvae last season. The #Biology and #EnvironmentalScience student loved her position and the ability to spend time outside - whether conducting #surveillance along local nature trails, monitoring public areas for standing water, or wading through irrigated fields.

The Florida Mosquito Control Association’s "Fly-In" was a great opportunity to learn about new aerial technologies and catch-up with customers. VDCI was asked to highlight the role our aerial division had in helping #Florida & #Texas with hurricane relief efforts last year. #FMCA #EmergencyResponse #MosquitoManagement #ProtectingPublicHealth

Can you identify this #species?
Last season, our team was discussing their next #MosquitoManagement mission when the intruder flew in. One of our #entomologist thought it was a big deal. #hinthint

Congratulations to VDCI’s 2017 AWARD WINNERS!

In addition to a busy mosquito season, the VDCI Team contributed to mosquito management efforts after hurricanes Harvey and Irma. A lot of hard work went into the post-season as well as routine responsibilities, and our team was there to navigate through every challenge on the ground and in the air. VDCI is grateful for the dedication and professionalism exhibited by all of our employees. A few individuals were selected by their colleagues to receive an award for their standout accomplishments and contributions in 2017.
We continued to be amazed by our team this year, and we are excited to see what we can accomplish together in 2018!

Dr. Broox Boze made friends with a Squirrel Treefrog (Hyla squirella), while preparing for a mission in #Florida.

#DidYouKnow some #mosquito species, like the Pale-Footed Uranotaenia (Uranotaenia lowii), lack interest in humans and prefer their blood meals from reptiles and #amphibians—mostly #frogs?

Are you interested in learning more about the Pale-Footed Uranotaenia? We’ve got a blog for that!
