Computer models for pesticide drift are widely used tools by regulatory agencies to estimate the deposition of pesticides beyond the intended target area. Currently, there is no model in use that has been validated or verified as an accurate means of estimating concentrations of insecticides after ground-based ultra-low volume (ULV) applications used for adult mosquito management. To address the need for a validated model we created a spreadsheet-based model called Mosquito Ultra-Low Volume Dispersion (MULV-Disp) to aid in the adoption and to provide easier use of a validated model. We explain the origin, use, and utility of MULV-Disp, which can be used by regulatory agencies and other interested parties to estimate deposition of ULV insecticides.
