I have several pest management questions related to an upcoming deployment (to include preventive medicine and entomological questions) and wish to find out what additional resources outside of the AFPMB are available. Where can I find this information?
An excellent overarching source for additional guidance and information may be found at United States Public Health Command. If you are serving as a member of the DoD or Federal government, you may also want to access the National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) webpage or use their complete contact information. If you don't have .mil or .gov e-mail access, call their 24-Hour Service/Request for Information number (301-619-7574), validate your need and submit your request.
I have an after-action report from my deployment and have some additional entomology observations that I think others could benefit from. Where can I send my information?
You should ensure that any recommendations or observations have first been vetted through your Chain of Command. However, we are interested in any information that could enhance current pest/vector management procedures, policy, and processes. Send your information to the AFPMB by e-mail, by fax to 301-295-7473, or call (301) 295-7476.
How do I get temporary approval to use a pesticide or related equipment item that is not on the DoD approved list?
Except where a validated emergency exists, only pesticides listed on the DoD Contingency Pesticide List shall be used during contingency operations. If non-approved pesticides must be sought for emergency use, the approval process is outlined in Appendix G of the Contingency Pest Management Guide (Technical Guide No. 24). For waivers to acquire any equipment items that are not in the Contingency Pest Management Guide, you must contact the AFPMB’s Contingency Liaison Officer at (301) 295-8312/7476 or via the webmaster.
