Abstract

The 26th Annual Latin American Symposium presented by the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) was held as part of the 82nd Annual Meeting of the AMCA in Savannah, GA, in February 2016. The principal objective, as for the previous 25 symposia, was to promote participation in the AMCA by vector control specialists, public health workers, and academicians from Latin America. This publication includes summaries of 19 presentations that were given orally in Spanish by participants from Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, and the USA. Topics addressed in the symposium included: surveillance, operations, ecology, chemical control, natural products, biological control, and insecticide resistance. Additionally, vector studies included malaria, dengue virus, and chikungunya virus transmission studies. The first reports and characterizations of infections in Mexico were reported during the symposium. Insect vectors included Aedes, Culex, and Anopheles mosquitoes in addition to ticks and triatomines.
