Vector Control conducts an Adult Mosquito Control program responding to residential areas where high adult mosquito populations exist or have tested positive for West Nile Virus.
Spraying is scheduled evenings, dusk- to 11 pm- when adult mosquitoes are most active, and pollinators are less active.
The control program uses an Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) spray which disperses fine droplets into the air. Adult mosquito control is the last step of our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Plan.
Product: AquaDUET, Registered and approved for use in and around food crops, livestock, commercial and residential areas. See link below.
Ideally, you may wish to avoid being outside at the time your area is being sprayed. The spray nozzle angled upward, and droplet sizes are intended for the material to rise and travel in a slight breeze. The operator will discontinue spraying within 50 feet of a passerby when possible.
Truck mounted Ultra Low Volume Spraying is used to distribute adult mosquito product to provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations. The spray material has a very low toxicity profile to mammals and negligible impact to non-target insects and the environment.
