Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM)
TASD practices, promotes, and firmly believes in utilizing integrated mosquito management (IMM) techniques for its operations. Utilizing an IMM approach means that TASD approaches 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.
