Golf Course Mosquito Control
Controlling mosquitos on a golf course is a three step process that includes treating immature mosquitos with growth regulators, fogging large areas to control adults and applying residual barrier treatments with the help of adjuvants.
- TREATING THE IMMATURE MOSQUITOS IN WATER OR OTHER BREEDING SITES
Applying Altosid® Pro G or 30 day briquettes to water will control the immature and not allow these stages to develop into biting adults. This is key in reducing the local population. • Altosid® Pro G is a fine granule that is perfect for catch basins and small containers of water. • Altosid® 30 Day Briquettes are appropriate for larger bodies of water (ponds, etc.).
- FOGGING LARGE AREAS TO CONTROL ADULT MOSQUITOS
The Curtis Dyna-Fog Mini-Lite Mister is the perfect size to quickly mount on a small utility vehicle for mosquito and fly control. Use Perm XTM 4-4 or Mosquito Mist Ultra for fogging mosquitos. This is an effective way to treat larger areas that are not practical for barrier treatments.
- APPLY RESIDUAL BARRIER TREATMENTS TO FOLIAGE, VEGETATION AND OTHER LANDING/RESTING SITES WITH
A BACK PACK MIST BLOWER Using a Solo 451 Back Pack mist blower, treat vegetation around structures and holes on the golf course. This is called a barrier treatment and kills adult mosquitos as they land on resting sites. This type of treatment will last for 2-3 weeks, versus fogging which will have no residual control, just a knockdown effect.
- USE IT04 MOSQUITO TRAP OF QM TO KILL MOSQUITOES IN GOLF COURSE
Use IT04 mosquito trap or MBOX mosquito killer to prevent small bugs fly around the golf course. Female mosquitoes have special sensors that are able to trace Co2 back to their origin (up to 50meter).
So these new mosquito traps release CO2 to specifically attract female mosquitoes. One of these new mosquito solution developed by QM is called the IT04 outdoor mosquito killer , by using photo catalysis of TIO2( titanium dioxide). When a titanium dioxide surface is irradiated by light, the photo catalytic effect and hydrophilic are activated together. Any organic chemical in contact with the surface will undergo decomposition to CO2 and H2O and thus releasing a smell that attracts female mosquitoes. IT04 mosquito trap is more effective than MBOX mosquito killer in outdoor since it can cover large area while MBOX mosquito is more useful in indoor area.
