Mosquito and Insect Control

Along with being an irritating nuisance, mosquitos present a significant risk to public health. They can be vectors for harmful pathogens including Zika and West Nile Virus, as well as Canine Heartworm. To reduce risks and increase the overall enjoyment of your property, we highly suggest adding mosquito control to your pond/lake management program.

How We Can Help

McCloud Aquatics offers a mosquito treatment program that utilizes both an aquatic larvicide and a terrestrial spray application.  Before making any kind of application, it is ideal to identify any breeding grounds on your property.  These typically are small puddles, birdbaths, buckets, old tires, and other objects which can contain water, or in other moist soils and structures.  After identifying the breeding sites, we plan and make applications so that the best control is provided.  For optimal control McCloud Aquatics recommends our full program which includes an aquatic larvicide application as well as a terrestrial spray application; both applications are individually available as well.

Larvacide Briquittes

Our mosquito larvicide program utilizes small briquettes which target mosquito larvae and prevent them from maturing into the flying, biting pests we know them as, and will also knock out a few generations in the breeding cycle. This treatment is great for aquatic applications as the larvicide has no negative impacts on the aquatic ecosystem!

Terrestrial Spray

Our terrestrial spray applications target all mosquito species and life stages.  The treatment is applied to targeted breeding hotspots as well as to high-traffic areas on the property.  The application is safe and provides a 50% reduction in the mosquito population.  

Natural Mosquito Relief Tips: Limit stagnant water by adding aeration. Stock fish in your pond or lake that eat mosquito larva.
