Biology and Control of Vectors and Public Health Pests Program


NEHA is working with CDC to provide vector control training to environmental health and other professionals whose works involves vector control and public health.  NEHA supports the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as an innovative method of controlling pest populations utilizing a variety of technologies (cultural, mechanical, biological, genetic, and chemical) based on biological information.


Training Programs

In collaboration with CDC/NCEH, NEHA facilitates Vector Control training through the Biology and Control of Vectors and Public Health Pests workshops. The program was created in response to the desire of environmental health professionals to learn and understand the biology of insect and rodent pests in order to more effectively and efficiently address the growing number of vector-borne diseases in their jurisdictions and communities.

  • Videos of the live course are available online at NEHA's e-Leaning site. For free access including free CE credits, please visit NEHA-CERT and click on the CDC Sponsored Programs link.

  • NEHA is currently working with CDC and the National Public Health Institute (NPHI) to convert the course to an easily accessible, online format.
