Mosquito Services

Mosquitoes are both an irritant and public heath concern. Global deaths from mosquito-born illness exceed one million, leaving many millions more suffering from malaria, dengue, yellow fever, and more. Animals, such as dogs and horses are especially susceptible to mosquito borne diseases and parasites including heart-worm, West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis.

Carroll-Loye offers a variety of mosquito based testing in lab, semi field, and field settings. We used lab reared Aedes, Culex, and Anopheles.

We consult and provide services to test the efficacy of;
-topical repellents, applied to skin of people and livestock
-spatial repellents
-checking biopesticides ability for mosquito knockdown

In Lab: Arm in cage trials, wind tunnel exposure for both spatial and topical repellents.

Semi-field conditions: Tented enclosures for checking biopesticides ability for mosquito knockdown as wel as test spatial repellency in outdoor settings.

Field conditions: We have year round access to natural mosquito habitat for spatial repellents trials, and GLP human subject testing.
