Cary scientist Shannon LaDeau will discuss one of summer's most formidable pests: mosquitoes.

Concerned about Zika, West Nile, and other mosquito-borne diseases? Discover which mosquito species spread illnesses, why invasive Asian tiger mosquitoes increase our risk of getting sick, and lessons learned about effective mosquito management.

For the past five years, LaDeau has investigated how urbanization shapes mosquitoes and disease risk in Baltimore, MD. The Mosquito Project blends mosquito monitoring, disease transmission modeling, environmental justice, and community engagement – with the goal of improving public health.
