Larvicide

14981136331_d545161faa_oThe most effective method of mosquito control is to treat sources while the mosquitoes are in their aquatic larval or pupal stages, before they mature into adult mosquitoes and disperse. In 2014 we adopted the use of a GIS platform to help with mapping, monitoring and recording of locations that require mosquito control. Upon inspection of the mapped locations, if larvae are present, a larvicide is applied. Successful applications of larvicide reduce the occurrence of adult mosquitoes in adjacent areas.
