By Veronica T. Sanchez, MD

Worldwide, the list of mosquito-borne diseases is growing due to increased international travel, global commerce, and the clearing of new lands for human habitation. Mosquito-borne viral diseases include those that cause hemorrhagic fever and neurologic disease. West Nile virus, which was first detected in the Western hemisphere in 1999, is one of several encephalitic viruses that now appears to be endemic in the United States. The curious evolution of the once relatively innocuous infection of birds is now causing deaths in birds, horses, and man. The incidence and fatality rate of West Nile virus in the United States is comparable to that of St. Louis encephalitis virus. Other than the supportive care typically provided to encephalitis patients, no treatments are available for persons with symptomatic West Nile virus infection. Dr. Sanchez presents the compelling recent history of the identification of West Nile virus infection in humans in New York in 1999 and the spread of West Nile virus through the United States. Only four states in the continental US have not reported laboratory-confirmed cases of West Nile virus infection.

Although pesticides are valuable allies in the control of pests that destroy crops, we don't want to exchange this benefit for environmental damage through their use. In the presentation you will explore the types and uses of pesticides, handling procedures (such as label contents and poisoning first aid) and caution around nontarget organisms, such as beneficial crop insects. Also discussed are laws, regulations and warnings (verbal and posted) that should be followed when applying pesticides.

An excellent introductory program into the lifecycle of insects and spiders and the way in which survival of the species is ensured. It has four main sections: the lifestyle, how insects obtain energy, how insects protect themselves and protection for the young. Insects have an amazing array of methods to ensure their survival from odours, poisons, stings, mimicry, camouflage and unique self made "buildings". Those with physical characteristics and behaviour that are suited to their environment will survive.
