Asian Tiger Mosquito Workshops

Mosquito Control staff from MDA will be presenting 2 workshops (in Annapolis & College Park) about the Asian tiger mosquito, our imported container-breeding mosquito.  It is our #1 pest species in much of the State, and is very difficult to control due to its habits & habitats.

 

You will learn about: general mosquito life cycle with examples under a microscope;  mosquito habitat & habits; in-depth exploration of containers used by Asian tiger mosquitoes & much more.  There will be time at the end for questions.

 

Workshop #1 will be held on June 28 from 10am–noon at the College Park City Hall (4500 Knox Rd, College Park, 20740), upstairs in the council chamber.

 

Workshop #2 will be held July 10 from 10am-noon at the Maryland Department of Agriculture main office in Annapolis (50 Harry S. Truman Pkwy, Annapolis, 21401), downstairs in the meeting rooms.

 

The meeting rooms at both sites have a size limit, so we ask that each attendee to please RSVP to

and before July 3rd for the July 10th workshop.
