Here at Bug Busters, we’ve expanded our mosquito service line to include vector control services, to further protect the public health of the communities we serve and stem the spread of mosquito-borne diseases.
What Is Vector Control?
“Vector control” is any method to contain or eliminate vectors of disease. In general, vectors can include birds, mammals, or insects like ticks. In our case, our Vector Control Program is aimed at controlling the population of mosquitoes (the vector, in this case) in a given area.
Our Vector Control Programs are completely customizable for your area’s unique needs, though generally, our programs include assessment, surveillance, testing, and treating. In terms of treatment, we often utilize a combination of larvicide, which controls the mosquito population by eliminating larvae, and adulticide, which eliminates adult mosquitoes.
Why Is Vector Control for Mosquitoes Necessary?
Mosquito bites aren’t just obnoxious; they can be deadly, too. In fact, mosquitoes are widely known as the most dangerous animal in the world, capable of transmitting diseases like…
- West Nile virus
- Yellow fever
- Lymphatic filarasis
- Zika virus
- Dengue fever
- Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE)
In order to stem the spread of diseases like West Nile and EEE, it is crucial to control and monitor mosquito populations.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Mike IS wonderful. He will come out multiple times in the same week if needed. My daughter got married last may, and we had the rehearsal dinner (for 50) at our house. Two weeks before the dinner, ants showed up in the kitchen. Mike kept coming out till they were all gone. He was a lifesaver.
They always let me know when they were coming, always professional. If I ever seen a bug in house they came immediately and resprayed. One happened once in three years. Always polite, punctual and professional. Wouldn’t have any other bug company! I also love the fact I have the same person every time come out. So me or wife know them by name and it’s great all the way around.
The agent was very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. I would definitely use this company’s service again.
