Mosquitoes Control


Mosquito control is essential for public health and comfort. Here’s a brief overview:

Importance of Mosquito Control: - Some mosquitoes can spread viruses like West Nile or dengue, which can make people sick. - Other mosquitoes are nuisance mosquitoes that bite people but do not spread viruses. - Everyone can play a role in controlling mosquitoes to reduce their impact on communities.

Methods of Mosquito Control: - Source Reduction: This is the most effective method. It involves finding and eliminating mosquito breeding places. Look for standing water and remove unneeded containers like tin cans and old tires. - Chemical Control: This method includes using larvicides to kill mosquito larvae or spraying insecticides from trucks or aircraft to kill adult mosquitoes.

Local Efforts: - Mosquito control activities are typically handled at the local level, often through county or city government programs. - The specific methods used depend on factors like the time of year, the type of mosquitoes, and their habitats.

Remember, everyone can contribute to mosquito control by taking simple steps to reduce breeding sites around their homes.


Mosquito fogging is a pest control method that involves releasing a fine mist of insecticide into the air to kill mosquitoes. The mist settles onto surfaces, killing mosquitoes on contact. Fogging is most effective when done at dawn and dusk, as mosquitoes are most active during these times. This ensures maximum exposure of mosquitoes to the insecticide. However, environmental conditions like temperature, humidity, and wind speed can significantly impact the effectiveness of fogging.


ULV Misting Water Based for mosquito control is a pest control method that uses Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) misting. This technique involves emitting tiny droplets of a specially formulated chemical preparation into open areas. The misting system uses large volumes of air at low pressures to transform the liquid into droplets that are dispersed into the atmosphere. This technique is effective for large areas where mosquito breeding ground is hard to detect. It’s an efficient control method as only small amounts of pesticides are used in the proces. It’s important to note that no authorized personnel should be around during the misting treatment for at least 4 hours.


Larviciding for mosquito control is a method that targets the aquatic immature forms of mosquitoes. It involves the regular application of microbial or chemical insecticides to water bodies or containers where mosquitoes breed. The aim is to kill mosquito larvae and pupae before they can grow into adults. This reduces the adult mosquito population, thereby helping to control the spread of mosquito-borne diseases. Larvicides are safe for humans, pets, and the environment when used according to product label instructions.


Mosquito spraying is a pest control method that involves the strategic application of insecticides in areas known to harbor and breed mosquitoes. The process can be done during the day or night, using different types of sprays.

Night-time Spray Treatments: These are commonly used for wide-area mosquito control. Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) application equipment is used to convert a liquid mosquito control product into an ultra-fine spray cloud comprised of microscopic droplets. The small size of the droplets allows them to float through the air for a short period of time so they can come in contact with flying adult mosquitoes.

Day-time Barrier Applications: These treatments create a barrier that prevents mosquitoes from entering a specific area.

The goal of mosquito spraying is to reduce mosquito populations, thereby reducing the risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile Virus, Zika, and various types of Encephalitis.
