Mosquito Control for a Safe and Quality Environment

Integrated Mosquito Management Plan (IMM)

The TASD practices, promotes, and firmly believes in utilizing integrated mosquito management (IMM) techniques for our operations. Utilizing IMM philosophies means that we approach the task of mosquito control from a holistic perspective: seeking to prevent and control mosquito populations at every possible level of their development.

The IMM approach employed by the TASD focuses on surveillance, source reduction, larval mosquito control, adult mosquito control, education, and community outreach. No single phase of the IMM approach is more important than another. Each aspect of this approach is integral to reducing and controlling mosquito populations in the most efficient and environmentally conscious manner possible. IMM uses methods that, when followed correctly, are safe and have been scientifically shown to reduce mosquito populations.

Larval Mosquito Control:
For water that contains mosquito larvae and cannot be drained or dumped, TASD professional can use a variety of techniques and products to reduce mosquitoes before they become biting adults. Learn more about our Larval Mosquito Control Program >>

Water Management & Source Reduction:
Mosquito larvae need water to survive. TASD professionals and homeowners can remove sources of standing water to reduce mosquito larvae before they become flying adult mosquitoes.

Adult Mosquito Control:
Adult mosquitoes are not only a potential nuisance, but also can carry life threating diseases. When surveillance data dictates TASD will respond to high population levels and elevated diseases risk by utilizing a variety of adult control techniques.
