Mosquito Population Analysis

        Through an extensive analysis process our mosquito population surveillance will provide you with an understanding of the species present, population level, breeding zones, infection rates and risks associated with your mosquitoes.  

Breeding Zones

     

      Your property with be assessed to identify and potential and active breeding zones. Active breeding zones are areas which mosquitoes are currently breeding. Potential breeding areas are sites that exhibit features necessary for mosquitoes to use during breeding. 

 

Species Identification & Distribution

     

      Various stations will be deployed to collected adult mosquitoes. These stations will hold devices that attract mosquitoes through techniques including carbon dioxide release, light traps, stagnant water traps and other methods. Mosquitoes collected at each station will be counted and identified based on species.

 

     This information will provide us with an understanding of where the highest concentration of mosquitoes are located, what species are present, and how close each population is to the nearest breeding zone. Collected mosquitoes can be submitted for lab testing to evaluate disease prevalence. 

     Additional components will be assessed to determine your overall mosquito population risk.

 

Analysis Candidates

     

     Our mosquito population analysis is intended for entities that would like to be aware of what risks are present at their property. Reasons our analysis has been conducted include local government entities assessing public risk, a non-profit board wanting an assessment completed before implementing our comprehensive program, and similar reasoning. 

     Most components of our mosquito population analysis are included in our comprehensive program for a lower cost. If you are already aware your facility has a high mosquito population, with visitors or guests currently being bitten by mosquitoes, our comprehensive program is likely a better fit.
