Abstract

The mosquitoes and plants symposium presented by the American Mosquito Control Association was held as part of its 73rd Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, April 1–5, 2007. The principal objectives were to share the research information about mosquitoes and plants and to promote using plants and vegetation for mosquito management. This publication summaries 15 presentations that were given orally by participants from 4 countries and 12 organizations. Topics addressed in the symposium included bromeliad-inhabiting mosquitoes, Anopheles mosquitoes associated with vegetation, phytochemicals as population-sampling devices, artemisinin for malaria control, mosquitoes' response to plant extracts, botanical repellents, mosquito larvicides from plants and medical plant extracts, plant essential oil–impregnated sand granules of larvicides, adulticidal efficacy of plant essential oils, vegetation barriers and plant treatment, wetland vegetation management, and vegetation effects on insecticide droplet size.
