[EN] BIOLOGISK MYGGKONTROLL

Vi utvecklar metoder för miljömässigt balaserad kontroll av myggproblem

The aim of Biological Mosquito Control is

to reduce the abundance of floodwater mosquitoes to acceptable levels so that people can enjoy living in and visiting the Nedre Dalälven region.

The treatment season has concluded

The flooding of Nedre Dalälven at the end of August will hatch larvae to such an extent that a control treatment would have been justified. In assessing the prognosis for cooler weather, there is a greatly reduced risk that this generation of flood mosquitoes will mate, which is required to provoke the females to seek a blood meal. In the absence of this, we determine that this generation of flood mosquitoes is unlikely to disturb people to any significant degree. We have therefore decided not to carry out any control effort this time and thus end our control season.

UPCOMING

Mosquito control

Larvae of floodwater mosquitoes are controlled by aerial application of VectoBac G granules, which contain Bti as active ingredient and are dispersed by helicopter.

To study the potential environmental impact of Bti, we have a non-target organism  programme.
