2017 Training Opportunies
 

 
The North Carolina Mosquito and Vector Control Association (NCMVCA) will host a workshop July 11-12, 2017 at the Pitt County Agricultural Extension Center (403 Government Circle, Greenville, NC).

Current NCMVCA Members are invited to attend this two day workshop. Day One (July 11, 2017) of the workshop is free to NCMVCA members (lunch is provided to attendees) that register by the deadline of June 19, 2017. Day Two (July 12, 2017) will cost $50 for members and will include a basic half-day larval mosquito identification course focused on container ovipositing mosquitoes.

We will apply for both pesticide applicator and REHS continuing education credits.

Note that the mosquito identification course (Workshop Day 2 – July 12, 2017) will be on a first come, first served basis, due to the availability of microscopes/specimens (up to 20 participants).
