Biological Control

Biological control is the use of existing organisms to control a particular pest or mosquito. These organisms are animals or pathogens that are considered “natural enemies” to the pest. Using biological control methods is a great long term, environmentally friendly alternative to chemical pesticide use.

May contain: aquatic, water, animal, and sea life

Our district uses Mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) to help control mosquito larva populations. If correctly and strategically employed, Mosquitofish can greatly reduce the larva population in a small pond, water trough, or neglected swimming pool.

If you are interested in the benefits of Mosquitofish and think they might be appropriate for your property, please fill out a service request form.
