Mosquitoes

Biology & Behaviour of Mosquito

Mosquito are an important group of arthropods that feed on human and animals for blood. There are about 3,100 species of mosquitoes in the world. Female mosquitoes need blood meal to lay eggs.Mosquitoes of different species lay their eggs in a variety of water sources that range from small containers to vast expanses of marshland. The larval stage is always aquatic and shuttles from the subsurface where it filter feeds on micro-organisms, and to the surface to obtain oxygen through a snorkel-like breathing apparatus. The pupal stage does not feed but unlike most insect pupae is extremely active. The adult emerges from the pupal case using air pressure and assume a terrestrial existence.

 

Source Reduction & Environmental Management

Source reduction and environmental management are the best approaches for providing long-term solution to many mosquito problems. The control of dengue fever vectors, using source reduction by getting rid of unwanted container and prevention of mosquito breeding in useful containers which breed can be highly effective.

 

Biology Control

Biological control can be briefly defined as the use of biological agents for the control of pests.

 

Chemical Control

For the control of adult mosquitoes, the use of chemical insecticidal adulticide in the form of space spray formulations, both thermal fogging and ultra low volume sprays, against vectors is routinely carried out in the prevention and control of dengue fever outbreak.

Studies on chemical larvicides including insect growth regulator (IGR) have been carried put and it shown to be effective for control of mosquito immatures with the necessary residual effects.

 

Physical Barriers & Personal Protection

Physical barriers including the netting of premises and the use of repellent should be incorporated in the overall strategies for mosquito control.

 

Control Methods

In order to detect potential pest issue early, we recommend you have regular inspection at your premises. All of our services are tailored to suit the need of your individual business.

  • Thermal Fogging

360 Vector Control And Space Spray This fog is designed to remain in the air for an extended period of time of at least several minutes, thereby increasing its ability to come in contact with the greatest number of mosquitoes.

  • ULV Misting

Deliver of insecticides in droplets that are smaller than aerosol, ULV droplets remain in the air for several minutes before settling on surfaces or directly on the pest. This method is effective in controlling flying insects. This method also allows the mosquitoes to make contact with the chemical more effectively.

  • Sanitation

Reducing potential breeding sites in your premises is crucial so that mosquitoes will have fewer sites to breed also eliminate potential breeding grounds by frequently checking and removing stagnant water collected by unused items in the premises. Common breeding grounds include flower pot plate or any unused container.
