ADAPCO® has over 30 years of experience controlling flying insect vectors, including biting midges. Culicoides midges, also known as “no-see-ums”, transmit epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV) and bluetongue virus (BTV) in deer and other ruminants. These viruses are detrimental to the sheep and deer industries causing a significant number of deaths in an outbreak. These detrimental viruses can be best managed by implementation of control strategies against the vector, the adult females of Culicoides midges. These control strategies may include the use of ultra low volume (ULV) applications of EPA approved insecticides. These applications can be made using precision-based ULV equipment and technology, like the Guardian 55es. Residual applications of insecticides can also be made to shelters and other animal housing facilities to protect your livestock.
