MOSQUITO AND TICK CONTROL

 
 
Mosquito control manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to human health, economies, and enjoyment. Mosquito control is a vital public-health practice throughout the world and especially in the tropics because mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria and the Zika virus.

Mosquito-control operations are targeted against three different problems:
1. Nuisance mosquitoes bother people around homes or in parks and recreational areas;
2. Economically important mosquitoes reduce real estate values, adversely affect tourism and related business interests, or negatively impact livestock or poultry production;
3. Public health is the focus when mosquitoes are vectors, or transmitters, of infectious disease.

TICK Control:

The synthetic pyrethroid insecticide Phenothrinin combination with the hormone analogue methoprene was a popular topical flea and tick therapy for felines. Phenothrin kills adult ticks, while methoprene kills eggs.

Mosquito control and Tick Control can be as easy as applying bifenthrin insecticide. Bifenthrin insecticide is available in both a granular and liquid form and can be used in conjunction with one another for best control. Mosquitoes prefer to hang out in cooler damp areas most of the day and are most active during evening and morning hours when temperatures are cooler.

The sprayable liquid form of bifenthrin can be applied to shrubs and lower tree limbs where mosquitoes prefer to hang out. Underneath decks and other damp shaded areas are targeted areas where bifenthrin can be applied as a liquid to reduce mosquito populations.
The granular version of bifenthrin can be applied in mulch or pine straw areas where mosquitoes seek refuge from hot summer temperatures. These areas can be sprayed, but depending on size, the granular version may be less time consuming to apply
Mosquito control with bifenthrin causes the mosquito’s central nervous system to become paralyzed when ingested or contacted. Bifenthrin is a synthetic pyrethroid. It’s a man-made pesticide that is very similar to the natural pesticide pyrethrum which is made out of chrysanthemum flowers. Bifenthrin is considered a newer generation insecticide
