Adulticides: The most effective mosquito control programs use adulticides in conjunction with larvicides. This is especially necessary when there are an excessive number of adult mosquitoes in an area or the outbreak of disease poses a health threat to your community. Products listed are industry standard for controlling mosquitoes that carry arboviral diseases including West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). In the Northeast District pesticides are applied using a truck mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) sprayer.
