Frio Nature Conservancy, Inc., based in Aransas Pass, Texas in
2004 began taking samples of bat droppings and sending them
to a Canadian lab for DNA testing. The lab checked (DNA) for the
presence of infected mosquitoes. This technology along with
GIS radar imagery enables FNC to track the bat and mosquito
population and with DNA can determine the risk factor of
infested mosquitoes at a rate far greater than ever before.
This technology was discontinued in 2006 as the location of the
vector mosquito could not be identified.
Today, with our current technology (Radar and other Satellite
Technology plus DNA evidenced-based Technology
reaffirmation), we are able to track the emergence of the early
evening (Dust to Dawn) vector mosquito IN REAL TIME from
their Breeding Pools and provide Target Specific Data for
working with community experts and public officials. FNC
targets the vector mosquito's natural vulnerabilities to allow for
a safer less toxic means of controlling this threat.
