EU Pest Alerts
The invasive Asian hornet Vespa velutina has been identified for the first time in Alderney, of the Channel Islands, posing a major threat to honey bee health. Alderney is the most Northern of the Channel Islands and due to the locality of this finding the UK is alerted to a potentially increased risk of Vespa velutina reaching shore.
The places it is most likely to be found are in southern parts of England (it may be able to cross the channel from France)

Suppression of a Field Population of Aedes aegypti in Brazil by Sustained Release of Transgenic Male Mosquitoes. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4489809/
Using self-limiting genetic technology SIT is one such promising method.
Sustained releases of OX513A Ae. aegypti males led to 80% suppression of a target wild Ae. aegypti population in the Cayman Islands in 2010.
Juazeiro, Bahia, Brazil. This study spanned over a year and reduced the local Ae. aegypti population by 95% (95% CI: 92.2%-97.5%)
Brazil was found to have the highest number of cases and economic burden, more recently estimated 16 million total infections annually.
Dengue is widespread in tropical and sub-tropical areas inflicting 50–390 million or more cases per year worldwide.

I would like to thank you for podcast. I started listening very early in the beginning. I come from a mid size company that does a great service for the community but still stuck a little in the past. We still spray baseboards for the majority of our accounts. Since listening to your podcast I’ve instituted more of a bait, education and ipm approach. We keep track of our retreats and reschedules every day and I have one of the lowest averaging 2 maybe a month. It has helped so much that I just got a 2 dollar raise for my efforts. I have since been moving towards going into business for myself. I would like to thank you for helping me learn and open my eyes to our industry. Thanks again
