How to Deal with Mosquitos in Your Yard

When it comes to killing and repelling mosquitoes, there are all sorts of alleged solutions. Some work better than others. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular approaches to mosquito treatment.

Larvicides

Larvicides are used to control mosquito larvae. These are chemicals specifically designed for application to water that combats larvae from breaching one’s yard, golf course or other space.

Adulticides

Adulticides are used to control fully grown mosquitoes. They are used for fogging and spraying across yards and other spaces where mosquito prevention is a must. Adulticides are quite effective in controlling adult mosquito populations and also to thwart an outbreak of disease stemming from mosquitoes. If a property is plagued by a massive infestation of mosquitoes, the application of adulticides will likely prove effective.

This solution is applied by air when emitted by an aircraft or on the ground level through sprayers mounted to trucks. These sprays are applied as ULVs. This is an acronym that stands for ultra-low volume. ULV sprayers send tiny aerosol droplets that hang in the air long enough to kill mosquitoes that fly through the designated area. These mosquitoes are killed upon contact. It does not take a significant amount of pesticide for an effective ULV application. In general, about three ounces are required of the pesticide’s active ingredient for each acre to be treated. This limited amount reduces the odds of exposure to people, pets, and the sensitive environment.

Synergists

Synergists do not kill mosquitoes alone. They must be combined with adulticides for an effective mosquito killing solution.

Naled

This is an insecticide that has been in use in the United States since the 60s. It controls grown mosquitoes. Naled is also applied to food and greenhouse food crops. It is commonly dispersed in an aerial manner through the aforementioned ULV spray. Sprayers are connected to airplanes or helicopters to send the aerosol droplets containing insecticide and water into the air below. A mere one to two tablespoons of naled is necessary for each acre.

Malathion

This is an organophosphate style of insecticide originally registered for use in the US back in 1956. It is commonly used by home gardeners to protect vegetables, ornamentals and fruit trees. Malathion controls mosquitoes as well as fruit flies, leafhoppers, aphids, Japanese beetles and other insects.

However, all of these chemicals are man-made. Each has various health risks for humans or pets; for example, pyrethrins will kill koi fish and various non-target pests, and Permethrins kill cats!
