Eliminating mosquito habitats around your home can go a long way to reduce the mosquito population. Mosquitoes require standing water for their young to hatch and develop, only a few tablespoons of water is all it takes. Once eggs are laid, a new generation of mosquitoes can hatch, grow and emerge from the water as adults in as little as one week. Videos on Mosquitoes» Mosquitoes pose a greater threat to man’s health than any other pest. More than species exist in North America and at least 60 of those have been identified as disease carriers. Malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, and most recently, West Nile virus, can be transmitted via a long beak with piercing mouthparts [ ].

In order to accomplish long-range, intelligent, and environmentally sound mosquito control, the management of mosquitoes must use not just one but all available pest control methods. This dynamic combination of methods into one thoughtful, ecologically-sensitive program is referred to as Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Physical control, also known as source reduction, environmental manipulation, or permanent control, is one part of the District’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. Physical control is usually the most effective of the mosquito control techniques available and is accomplished by eliminating mosquito breeding sites or modifying these.
