Southeast Texas region, is surrounded by many different water ways. This causes pesky mosquitoes to be a nuisance almost year round. In the U.S. there are more than 200 species of mosquitoes. Each species has unique behaviors and bites certain types of animals, but all mosquitoes have the same, four stage life-cycle.
- Egg: After a female mosquito has a blood meal (males do not bite), she lays her eggs in a place where they will be exposed to water – either directly on stagnant water, in a depression, or on the edge of a container where rain water will collect.
- Larva: When water floods the eggs, they hatch. A mosquito larva feeds and lives in the water, growing into the pupa stage.
- Pupa: A mosquito pupa continues to live in water, but does not feed. Internal changes to the pupa occur, and it emerges from the water as an adult mosquito.
- Adult Mosquito: Each will emerge from the water and begin to search for a blood meal.
Hand held mosquito fogging one time services to specified areas for parties, events or special occasions or on an as needed basis. This method allows the technician to apply the material directly to a specific area where our fleet truck foggers may not have access to. The backpack method is a very proficient means of decreasing adult populations of mosquitoes in areas where they are prone to harborage.
Fleet Truck Fogging Services
One of the most popular methods of controlling mosquito populations around worksites at Industrial type facilities are by use of the truck mounted fogging services. This effective means of service allows us to cover a large area in a timely manner while lessoning the amount of adult mosquito populations. These services are mainly performed in early morning hours and late in the evening (when mosquitoes are most active). Compared to several area counties in our region, Bill Clark Pest Control has one of the largest mosquito fleet truck fogging services.
