Our goal is to assess public areas through surveillance, then larvacide problem areas frequently to avoid adult mosquito treatments throughout the area. We emphasize the primary use of biological larvacide materials and food grade larvacidal oils that quickly degrade. If we must employ adult mosquito treatments, we first utilize a targeted approach at the disease source areas, limiting overall fogging activity. We are committed to applying the least toxic control methods for our integrated mosquito management programs.
Also referred to as Surveillance, or "Trapping," indicates adult mosquito populations in given areas. Information collected is used to determine populations of specific mosquito species, presence of disease in mosquito samples, future population spikes, effectiveness of larvaciding efforts, and other various uses.
A crucial component in urban mosquito management planning, larvaciding stops mosquitoes before they take to wing. Widespread and effective larvaciding throughout municipal properties greatly reduces the number of adult mosquitoes.
Ground based adult mosquito control is also known as ULV Fogging and Spraying. These activities are the most publicly sensitive components of mosquito control. Our company is sensitive to public hesitance regarding Fogging or Spraying and we offer very targeted applications designed for small spaces, natural organic solutions for very specific areas, as well as large area truck mounted ULV Fogging.
Entex Pest maintains an exclusive relationship with an independent laboratory performing Real Time PCR (RTPCR) with same day, 24 hour, or 48 hour results. We utilize only RTPCR to maintain uniform data collection standards with local and state health departments.
From response plan development, assisting with protocol for an existing program, taking questions at town hall meetings, to providing training conferences for municipal staff, our vector entomologists extend opportunities to spread the facts of Integrated Mosquito Management.
