Mosquito Larvae Control
Mosquitoes can be controlled by a number of methods. Source reduction through water management is the most widely used and ecologically sound approach. This method involves eliminating excess surface water. Another method is to install aerators to keep the water moving, which will prevent larvae from developing. Fish can also play a big part in the reduction of mosquitoes. Methods can also be augmented by the use of insecticides and larvicides if necessary. It is important to fully understand the life cycle, habits, numbers, and location of mosquitoes to effectively control their populations.
