While working with Broward County, Florida last season our team was able to assess the efficacy of Wide-Area Larvicide applications via truck-based application equipment within several areas of South Florida. While these types of applications are still in their infancy, we had the opportunity to characterize droplet density and do larval cup assays during a real life application. Our team was able to collect data with regards to spray penetration and larval mortality at three (3) locations (front, middle, and back) within twelve (12) individual properties.
