EPA Method 810.3400:
Mosquito, Black Fly, and Biting Midge (Sand Fly) Treatments

This section is concerned with efficacy data requirements for evaluation of invertebrate control pesticides as outdoor and breeding ground treatments against several groups of important insect pests which pose economic and public health threats to man in urban, rural, agricultural, and wilderness habitats. The insects for which data considerations are outlined here belong to five families: Culicidae (mosquitoes), Simuliidae (black flies), Ceratopogonidae (biting midges), and nonbiting midges in the families Chironomidae (midges) and Chaoboridae (phantom midges).

This guideline is intended to meet testing requirements of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 136, et seq.)
