Adulticiding

 

Manatee County Mosquito Control District uses both ground and air equipment to spray for adult mosquitoes. Fog trucks are a common sight throughout the summer and fall months. They provide localized relief for small scale problems. When there is a widespread problem or large area, we use our aircraft to treat for adult mosquitoes. The length of relief from all adulticiding is only temporary and depends upon many factors. Reinfestation, weather, and equipment failure are just some of the problems that can occur during or after spray missions that determine the effectiveness of our treatment. We strive to provide the best service possible to our county.
