Description: mosquito control deals with the extermination of mosquitoes so as to minimize their destructive impact on human existence, finances, and pleasure. It is an essential public-health practice across the globe and particularly in the tropics as mosquitoes transmit a variety of tropical viruses, including the dengue virus and malaria. Control is essential because many people are stricken by mosquito bites, which cause itching and pain. The Americas, for example, suffer from an epidemic with over a hundred million infected mosquitoes each year.
Control is normally performed by trained technicians who apply mosquito control, often baiting baits in order to kill mosquitoes and prevent them from reproducing. It can also be done manually, through applying insecticides on plants and yards. The majority of people simply use a standard insecticide spray bottle filled with a specially formulated insecticide, or an aerosol sprayer for larger areas. A mosquito control program should be implemented at the end of the summer season and extended until the spring season. In most regions, insecticides are only used from mid-afternoon to nighttime, however, some areas have been known to use them after noon as well.
Control methods vary depending on whether you want to do it manually or chemically. In most cases, insecticides are recommended over fumigation because they are less likely to be damaged by animals or humans. If you opt to use a chemical, you should consider putting mothballs in rows along the perimeter of your yard, along pathways, in marshy areas, and any other places where mosquitoes tend to cluster. There are two main types of insecticides – chemical and non-chemical. Although they can harm people and pets, chemical-based mosquito control programs are more effective than non-chemical ones.
Perennial vegetations and gardens are perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes and larvae. This is why it is important to check your yard to make sure there are no standing water sources near your home or garden. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water and larvae will hatch and emerge from these eggs in order to feed on mosquitoes. Therefore, if you find larvae or eggs in your yard, you should immediately take action and apply mosquito control.
Many mosquito control companies also recommend that you refrain from feeding your pet or keeping a large flock near your home. For this reason, you should also refrain from putting any kind of decorations, such as netting, around your garden in areas where there are known mosquito-bearing mosquitoes. If you do have mosquitoes biting you, it’s best to keep yourself safe and seek mosquito control immediately, rather than waiting to see if the larvae will hatch in the coming weeks.
Pesticides can be sprayed around your home as well. Sometimes, it can be hard to determine whether or not you have been sprayed because some people will have a lingering smell, but this is normally caused by organic pesticides, which dissipate quite quickly after they are sprayed. Mosquitoes will generally avoid being sprayed directly by a pesticide, so if you see a cloud of black or reddish substance around your home after a mosquito control is conducted, you most likely have been sprayed with an organic insecticide. These are generally not as dangerous as the traditional organics, but they can still pose health risks to you and your family.
