Mosquito Control Service
Vectors of many tropical diseases.
In temperate climate they are more a nuisance than as a vector.
About 3000 species of mosquitoes are known of which about 100 species are vectors of human diseases.
Fat people are often more attractive to mosquitoes because they are larger targets and they produce more mosquito attractants, namely CO2 and lactic acid. So also active or fidgety people.
Dark clothing has been shown to attract some species of mosquitoes more than lighter colour clothing.
Movement increased mosquito biting up to 50%.
Full moon increased mosquito activity 500%.
Only female mosquitoes are blood-feeding and therefore bites a man.
We offer services to avoid mosquitoes, use of residual spraying to prevent mosquitoes from frequenting houses and use of lavicides for controlling the larvae of mosquitoes. In a larger area like a form house we undertake to kill adults by fogging.
