This two-part webinar series will delve into the special considerations vectors warrant following environmental disasters/emergencies such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and even pandemics in urban areas.
It’s easy to lose sight of the importance of vector control immediately following a natural disaster or during a pandemic. Understanding how to react and what to expect may help people control disaster-related increases in pests and vector-borne diseases. Drawing on past examples, this webinar will discuss pest-related consequences of disasters/emergencies and the short- and long-term actions that can be taken to minimize disease transmission through integrated vector control programs.
