Mosquito & Larva Treatment
Any control action against mosquitoes should also include control against the larvae. Mosquitoes breed in open or close to water bodies. This can consist of pennanent water bodies such as swamps or lakes, or temporary sources such as tidal pools and rainwater accumulation in old tyres, tree hollows, refuse dumps, empty disposed cans or containers. Different mosquito species breed in different habitats ranging from fresh to salty and from clean to polluted water.

For example, the Aedes mosquito prefer clean stagnant water while the Culex mosquito prefer polluted water. It is important to identify the problem species correctly and to confinn its breeding sites.
Control strategy
Once located, these breeding sites can he treated with the chemical as a spray treatment at the recommended rates used for mosquito larvae control.
