Vector-borne diseases are transmitted to wildlife, domestic animals, and humans by insects and other types of arthropods. Mosquitoes are the principal vectors associated with most types of water and related land resources developments in the United States. The nature of these problems is reviewed. The need to understand the ecologic conditions involved in vector production and to incorporate vector prevention designs and techniques in project proposals and plans is stressed.
