Invasive Aquatic Weeds: Implications for Mosquito and Vector Management Activities .

The adverse effects of invasive aquatic and riparian weeds on water quality; hydrology, native plant communities, and wildlife habitat and their consequences for mosquito control efforts, public health and nuisance problems, while implied, could be better articulated. The effects of Invasive aquatic weeds are becoming an increasing problem in favoring the breeding of potentially disease-carrying mosquitoes, and interfering with vector control efforts. However, there have been a number of collaborative activities among governmental agencies and a variety of natural history and weed management groups and here I present some of the more successful of these activities. I will begin with a brief discussion of how concepts of Integrated Pest management apply to mosquito control and then illustrate specific invasive plants and problems they present.
