Cholera, Dysentry, Malaria, Dengue and many other dreaded diseases are transmitted by flies and mosquitoes. Our integrated control measures comprises of treating the areas of breeding controlling adult nuisance and preventing recurrence. D2 with its multi- pronged programme has effective control measures for these pests.
Mosquito Carrier of malaria, dengue, encephalitis, yellow fever. The mosquitoes have worldwide distribution, they occur throughout the tropical and temperate regions. They are found at elevations of more than 5000 mts. and in deep mines.
The mosquitoes which bites human beings belong to the Genara-Anopheles, Culex, Aedes, Mansonia, Haemagogus, Sabethes and Psorophora. The above various species of mosquitoes are a big nuisance to man.
The life cycle of mosquitoes is of 4 stages-Egg, Larva, Pupa and Adult. The duration of the life cycle depends on some of the a biotic factors, particularly temperature and biotic factors. Most of the species under tropical conditions complete their life cycle in 7-10 days. The life span of adult also depends on climatic conditions.
Mosquito control is based on the study of bionomics and behavior of the target species and environment. Control measures are carried out in two stages-Larvicidal measures to control the mosquitoes in their immature stages and fogging operation to control the adult mosquito. Spraying pesticides having residual effect is used to control resting mosquitoes on various types of surfaces and anti- larva treatment is carried out on the stagnant water and other vulnerable areas where the mosquitoes breed. Space spray is used to knockdown mosquitoes which are not accessible .
We suggest that larvicidal measures and fogging operations must be carried out once in a week. This will enable to control the menace of mosquitoes.
This is the only possible way to keep your area free from the ravages of the mosquito and help families to grow in a healthy environment.
