Description

Abstract Text:
New Jersey mosquitoes have been of great public nuisance and economic importance since the earliest historical record. Migrating flood water mosquitoes and domestic species have affected not only the economic development of rural and resort areas but also the great urban and industrial centers. The problems from nuisance species continues to impact the state, but are nevertheless diminished by the sudden appearance of new mosquito-borne arboviral diseases. West Nile Virus (WNV) has become firmly established in the northeast since its unexpected appearance in New York City during the fall of 1999. Similarly, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) poses an annual public health threat to residents, tourists and the equine industry in southern New Jersey and appears in mosquito populations every year. We believe that surveillance in New Jersey alerts mosquito control agencies to epidemiological events early enough in the amplification process for intervention to help prevent human involvement. We intend to maintain and improve the surveillance tools currently available.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
