Mosquito Control Philippines
Common Mosquito Species in the Philippines
The adult mosquito has a black, narrow body with unique light and dark patterns on its abdomen, thorax, and legs. They prefer to breed in man-made containers with clean water and can fly short distances. Aedes mosquitoes are aggressive daytime feeders with peak activity at dawn and dusk. They have a preference for feeding on humans and can transmit diseases like dengue fever, chikungunya, and Zika virus.
There are several types of Aedes mosquito, but two of the most important and well-known species are Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus.
The Anopheles mosquitoes transmit malaria, filariasis, and encephalitis. They are easily recognized by their resting position with their proboscis, head, and body forming a straight line at an angle to the surface. They lay their eggs in water with heavy vegetation and the larvae breathe through posterior spiracular plates on the abdomen. The life cycle ranges from 18 days to several weeks.
The Culex genus of mosquitoes can transmit diseases like the West Nile virus and Japanese encephalitis. They have a brownish-gray appearance with light-colored scales on their wings and bodies and are attracted to warm, moist environments near water sources like marshes, ponds, and lakes. Stagnant water around properties, such as in bird baths and pools, can provide ideal breeding grounds. Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, making them difficult to see during the day.

Mosquitoes can fly up to 1-3 miles in search of a blood meal, increasing the risk of disease transmission over a wide area.
Mosquitoes can breed in as little as a teaspoon of water, making it essential to eliminate standing water around homes and businesses to prevent their reproduction.

Our Mosquito Control Methods
Our Mosquito Control Methods:
Larvicide - A larvicide is a type of insecticide that targets and kills the larvae stage of insects. Using larvicide can help prevent an infestation before it becomes a serious problem, by controlling the population of insects before they mature into adults.
Adulticide - is a type of insecticide used to kill adult ﬂies.
Both are to be applied by pest control professionals like our EnviroTechs for proper application.
Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) Misting Treatments – For wide spaces, we use a machine to disperse our FDA-approved and green-labeled chemicals to cover all surfaces including hard-to-reach areas. They come in residual forms, aerosols, or fogging materials.
Insect Light Traps (ILT) - These are units with distinctive UV spectrums installed on and within the building that attract and capture ﬂying insects.
