Why Are Insecticides Ineffective in Mosquito Control?
Insecticides are actually a good mosquito control method. They kill mosquitoes almost instantly. They are laced with chemicals which for the most part destroy mosquito’s nerves thus killing them. They are usually harmless to humans though some people are allergic to some of their chemicals. Even so, insecticides become ineffective depending on the consistency of use. The more you use the insecticide the more effective it becomes as a mosquito deterrent. This is because they wear out as easily as they are applied. This is because of natural causes such as wind and sunlight. Insecticides are increasingly becoming ineffective because of mosquitoes building up resistance to their effect which is very worrying.
Mosquitoes have some of the shortest lifespans of all species. The adult male mosquito dies after fertilization of the eggs. This is usually after five days or so. The female mosquito lives for just a few months. This is also dependent on the right conditions. Under cold and windy conditions, mosquitoes don’t do well. Mosquitoes’ life cycle is divided into four stages: egg, larvae, pupa, and adult. Mosquito breeding is very dependent on water. The larvae feed on organic matter in the water and have breathing tubes to siphon oxygen. This makes mosquito control largely dependent on the management of water and in particular stagnant water in your compound.
Natural Mosquito Control
Natural mosquito control refers to those methods one might use to deter mosquitoes that are dependent on using naturally available factors. The Gambusia is a small fish that lives in stagnant water and will eat mosquito larvae. They are efficient as they are small and don’t overbreed. Dragonflies are also excellent mosquito repellents. Their nymphs feed on mosquito larvae and their adults feed on adult mosquitoes. Citronella plant has oils that are mosquito repellent. The trick with using this plant is to plant in along high traffic areas where it gets stepped on by people and animals to release these chemicals. It is effective only for killing mosquito larvae. Most natural mosquito control methods depend on geography. They won’t work for some people.
