Mosquito misting and power mister
APC conducted Mosquitoes misting using water based preparation. Misting is for fast “knock-down” of pest especially air-borne pest (e.g. Mosquito and fly). It leaves a residual on plants, shrubs and building structures which are fatal to the Mosquitoes when in contact. Misting will penetrate fully because of its small particle size of about 25 mircon. Misting solution is of low toxicity and will not pose any health hazard to people working in the job site. Misting unlike fogging, does not emit smoke and is environmental friendly.
Reduce mosquito annoyance in your construction site and the risk of mosquito-borne disease by eliminating sites at external of the construction area that serve as habitat for mosquito larvae. All mosquito larvae need standing water to develop. As little as one-half inch of water in a discarded can or container will support dozens of mosquitoes.
As the mosquitoes have to breed in water, it is more effective and efficient to control mosquito at source at its aquatic stage. Pesticide should only be used for killing of mosquito in its breeding place or preventing its breeding if the breeding sources or potential breeding grounds are inaccessible or could not be eliminated for the time being.
Apc has to be adopted for the prevention and control of mosquito. Elimination of stagnant or/and slow running water is the fundamental and most effective mosquito prevention and control method. Application of chemical including pesticide and Am-oil should be the last resort and temporary measure for killing mosquito larvae.
