Adulticiding

Process


Adulticiding is the use of pesticide to control adult mosquitoes. This can be accomplished two ways, either by truck mounted equipment or by aircraft.

When a need is determined through our surveillance program, ground spray trucks will run Monday through Thursday evenings between 8 p.m.-2 a.m. The pesticide used is Duet delivered as an aerosol at 4 ounces per acre.
