The performances of three larvicides used for the control of Culex quinquefasiatus mosquitoes are detailed below. The products were applied at 5 lbs per acre in 12-13-inch water depth in simulated field conditions with UV exposure. The site of the study in Las Cruces, New Mexico provided a typical Culex habitat with moderate to high organic material.
Efficacy trials for Zenivex® E20 have been very successful at all label rates — 0.00175, 0.0035, and 0.007 lb A.I. per acre. More than 30 tests have been conducted at locations throughout the Northeast, Southeast, South and the Western United States on a variety of mosquito species* including:
Efficacy charts from tests in Cascade County, Montana; Fallon, Nevada; Georgetown, South Carolina; and Manatee County, Florida are available.
When it comes to threats of mosquito-borne diseases, communities look to local leaders for action and information. A quality community relations program allows mosquito abatement districts and public health officials to educate the public, keeping them aware of programs and treatments to ensure their safety.
Everyone can help control mosquitoes. By minimizing the amount of standing water around the home and community, families can significantly reduce mosquito populations.
