and use of entomology-oriented equipment. Where facilities engineering responsibilities
have been assigned to the Corps of Engineers, the Army Medical Department (AMEDD)
may conduct such animal vector and disease reservoir operations as required for
training AMEDD personnel. Training operations of this type will be coordinated with the
facility engineer to preclude duplication of effort and provide required reporting data.
Combat zone and/or communications zone pest management programs will be
supervised by entomologists.
c. Facility Engineers. Facility engineers will conduct programs for the control
of insects, rodents, and other pests, including animal vectors and reservoirs of
diseases. Besides planning, supervising, and executing pest control operations, the
facilities engineer will:
(1) Investigate the occurrence, abundance, and importance of pests that
damage or destroy supplies and property, as well as other pests as required.
(2) Prepare and utilize long range work plans, annual work plans, and
schedules of operations for pest control in accordance with the principles of work
management, as applicable.
(3) Maintain records of operations (for example, investigations, inspections,
utilization of manpower, funds, and pesticides) for analyzing efficiency and economy
and for evaluating accomplishment of pest control.
Ensure operating personnel receive on-the-job training and proper
Inspect and evaluate the effectiveness and safety of applied control
(6) Cooperate with the Army Medical Department by controlling pests of
medical importance and quarantine pests.
Maintain mosquito light traps.
d. Quartermaster Laundry Units. Quartermaster laundry units will impregnate
clothing with insect repellents whenever recommended by the medical authority.
