Larvaciding is applied to control the population of adult mosquitoes by hindering its growth during its life cycle. We spray larvicide in areas where stagnant water is normally found:
- Overflow ponds
- Flood irrigated fields
- Water in discarded tires
- Discarded refuse ie. soft drink containers and steel cans
- Rain gutters
- Drains with stagnant water
- Swimming pools, etc.
These sites are monitored and once larvae are found in sufficient numbers, treatment will be applied.
MAXPRO’s IPM approach includes surveillance, source reduction, larviciding and adulticiding to control mosquito populations.
