Clean out ant receptacle holding stagnant water; and place tight covers over drums cisterns, cesspools, septic tanks, barrels, and tubs where water is stored.

HOW WE CONTROL MOSQUITO PROBLEM
Larvicide Application: We apply larvicides: Here we apply environmental friendly solution to eliminate the early life stage of mosquito:
Egg: hatches when exposed to water: female mosquitoes can’t land to lay eggs when larvicide is attached
Larva (plural. – larvae): lives in water; molts several times; most species surface to breathe air. The larvicide acts as a physical barrier preventing larvae from breathing.
Pupa (plural – pupae): does not feed; stage just prior to emerging as adult: Kills pupa through physical barrier preventing from breathing and hatching.
Adulticides: Spraying of repellents, insecticides indoors and outdoors that kills resting and adult mosquitoes using a range of application methods from surface spray to aerial spray designed to eliminate all mosquitoes and protect area for longer periods.
Mist Solution: This is designed and installed to protect your outdoor space e.g gardens, patios, balconies and outdoor resting areas from flying adult mosquitoes and other flying and biting insects. This can be automated to dispense mosquito repellents solutions at a predetermined time.
