We are pleased to announce that the Entomological Society of Malaysia (ENTOMA) will be organizing a pilot workshop focusing on chigger mites in collaboration with the Tropical Infectious Diseases Research & Education Centre (TIDREC). The event will take place on the 26th of September, 2024, at Universiti Malaya.

Why Attend the Chigger Workshop 1.0?

Chigger mites are often overlooked vectors in the study of entomology and public health. This workshop aims to shine a spotlight on these tiny arthropods, providing invaluable hands-on experience in chigger mite sampling and specimen preparation. This is a unique opportunity for science officers, academicians, researchers, students, and individuals involved in the entomology and pest industry to deepen their understanding of chigger mites and their impact on public health.

Workshop Highlights

The Chigger Workshop 1.0 will feature a series of informative sessions led by experts in the field. Participants will gain practical skills in chigger mite collection, identification, and specimen preparation. Additionally, the workshop will cover the latest research on the role of chigger mites in transmitting diseases, providing a comprehensive overview of this neglected vector.
