Water resource developments including canals, rivers, lakes, and streams, can become breeding grounds for disease carrying vectors such as mosquitoes, which makes the control of these insects a paramount concern, especially for those who use these bodies of water for business, as was the case here, or pleasure.

The Division of Vector-Borne Diseases’ (DVBD) work in responding to existing and future threats is unique. DVBD combines specialized epidemiology, ecology, laboratory and prevention expertise to respond to the challenges presented by vector-borne diseases. We work closely with state and local health departments, as well as partners in academia, industry and other federal agencies, and answer the call for expertise from international partners during epidemics.
