  • Aerial Adulticide

    During periods of high adult mosquito activity, it is necessary to treat large areas of the County; this can be accomplished by using helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft. Lee County Mosquito Control District has two Douglas C-3’s and two King Air’s allowing for quick coverage of the county when there is a significant mosquito problem. Equipped with the latest technologies of GPS (Global Positioning System) navigation and night vision goggles these fixed-wing adulticiding missions are conducted at night, usually between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m., when adult mosquitoes are active and more likely to be exposed to the very small droplets produced by the ULV (ultra-low volume) spray system. Lee County also has one helicopter equipped with a high pressure ULV spray system for treating the outer islands of the county, these missions are conducted in the early morning hours, usually at sunrise.

    In Map-Info we create a map of the area to be treated and add any flight obstacles. The mission is then saved to a disk. After the mission is completed the spray data is saved. It is then downloaded to the computer where treatment overlays the flight path on the map.
