What are they
Species: Aedes agypti & Aedes albopictus (CONTAINER BREEDING MOSQUITOES) Adults develop in 7-10 days with a life span of 2-4 weeks
When are they active
During the daytime. They evade the County LPV sprays.
Where are they
They prefer HUMAN blood meal. So they roost as close as possible to the home. Adults will roost/take harborage in ornamentals on the underside of leaves.
How do you kill them
Normal sprayers are ineffective. We use LPV power sprayer which allows material to get beneath the leaf. To halt reproduction, Methoprene is used in larval breeding sites. It’s approved for drinking water, animal troughs, fish ponds, bird baths, and more.
What can I do to minimize their outbreak? Tip & Toss any containing that can hold standing water where mosquitoes will breed.
