VectoBac Mosquito Larvacide
Bacterial Midge & Mosquito Control
In lieu of chemical pesticides that can potentially harm humans, pets, and wildlife, Lake & Wetland Management recommends VectoBac, a naturally-occurring, biodegradable bacteria product, registered for use by the EPA and recommended by the World Health Organization for control of mosquito larvae. VectoBac targets aquatic insect larvae including midges, mosquitoes, Yellow Flies, horseﬂies, and biting midges (“no-see-ums”) and can help combat insects that carry the Zika Virus, canine heartworm, and various strains of encephalitis, diseases, and parasites that threaten humans, dogs, birds, and horses.
Controlling mosquitoes & midges is essential for Florida residents living near lakes. Our eco-friendly midge larvae & mosquito control service provides custom plans for a more effective approach for your waterway.
Biological Mosquito Control
Mosquito Fish Stocking & Bat Box Installation
Lake & Wetland Management stocks native Eastern Mosquitoﬁsh year-round because they are mosquito larvae-eating machines that naturally reproduce in our waterways to deliver effective natural mosquito larvae control generation after generation, year after year. To combat ﬂying adult midges and mosquitoes, we install bat boxes to attract insect-eating bats that can each potentially catch up to 1,000 mosquito-sized insects in a single hour. The quantity of insects consumed by a bat colony can be truly staggering and signiﬁcantly reduce the number of biting insects in your neighborhood.
Our eco-friendly fish stocking service in Florida is a strategic approach to managing the fish populations for your waterways.
