The NSMAD adult mosquito control program is comprised of barrier applications and truck mounted, ultra-low-volume (ULV) insecticide applications. Barrier control consists of applying a mosquito insecticide to vegetation (shrubs and bushes, tall grasses, hedges) and surfaces where mosquitoes rest. It is utilized to protect a limited size area for a relatively short period of time. Under ideal weather conditions, these applications can provide up to four weeks of adult mosquito control. The NSMAD uses barrier control to reduce mosquito biting for events in public areas, such as picnics, movies in the park, and other special municipal events
