Updated SOPs for spatial spraying and larviciding

I2I is pleased to announce the publication of updated SOPs for spatial spraying and larviciding.

Working in conjunction with a team of external experts, I2I Consultant Alex Wright has assessed existing SOPs used across the vector control community, producing a set of 8 updated and streamlined protocols for both spatial spraying and larviciding operations. New refinements to the spatial spraying SOPs include: open field experiments for both aerial and ground-based applications, outdoor field trials, equipment calibration and intrinsic toxicity and wind tunnel testing. Larviciding SOPs now include details for Bti, insect growth regulators, and field evaluation.

To view the full suite of refined SOPs for spatial spraying and larviciding please visit the Laboratory Testing Infrastructure or Resources webpage.
