Please join us for ‘Michigan Mosquitoes – Pesky Nuisance or Winged Zika-Wielding Assassins?’ with Dr. Michael Kaufman, professor and outreach specialist, Department of Entomology, Michigan State University. Dr. Kaufman teaches a disease vectors course for undergraduates and graduates at KBS each summer and does larval mosquito ecology research and testing of mosquitoes for viral disease agents. At this program he will share local mosquito biology to help us understand our disease systems. He will also talk about Zika, why it is not likely to be a threat to most Michigan residents, and what you should consider when opting for mosquito control measures.
