Mosquito Control

Field technicians are busy each day checking standing water for mosquito larvae and, when found, treating the area with the appropriate control.

Our variable flow foggers use GPS/GIS to adjust the amount of adulticide being dispersed according to the speed of the pickup. The truck speed must be between 3 and 20 mph; any speed below or above that range, and the fogger automatically shuts off. The amount of adulticide being delivered is calculated on an area basis so as the truck slows, less is being delivered. As the truck speeds up, more adulticide will be pumped so that the area covered receives a consistent amount of adulticide.

If wind speed is greater than 10 mph or air temperature is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, fogging won't occur. The address of all no-spray requests is programmed for each fogging route. The GPS controller will automatically shut off the fogger when the pickup reaches that address (including a buffer either side).

Fogging to control adult mosquitoes is done in the evening, Monday - Thursday. See the schedule below for nights when mosquito fogging will take place in your area. Fogging occurs after sunset and continues until around midnight: this is the time the Culex mosquitoes are active (they carry West Nile Virus).
