Vector Disease Control International (VDCI) takes pride in providing The City of Jonesboro with the tools they need to run effective mosquito control programs. Our mosquito management professionals offer supplemental services to existing mosquito surveillance and control efforts as well as extensive experience in operating comprehensive Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) programs. Our team has also played an integral role in disaster relief and disease outbreak situations. We are determined to protect the public health of the communities in which we operate.

A 4-Pronged Approach to Target All Phases of the Mosquito's Life Cycle

VDCI is the industry expert in Integrated Mosquito Management programs. These programs include public education, surveillance, disease testing, and a variety of control measures, all of which are essential to managing mosquitoes and helping to prevent the transmission of serious diseases.

1: Public Education
Understanding how to properly eliminate mosquito breeding habitat and take personal protective measures is critical. Educating the public empowers people to take control of the mosquitoes breeding in their community.

2: Surveillance
In order to understand the risk and address the threat appropriately, it is critical to determine the mosquito distribution, density and species composition throughout the target area. Surveillance will provide direct evidence of an increased transmission risk of vector-borne diseases.

3:  Larval Mosquito Control
Eliminating mosquitoes prior to them becoming adults is an important element of controlling mosquito-borne diseases because it stops mosquitoes before they acquire the virus and have the opportunity to transmit it to people.

4: Adult Mosquito Control
When necessary, adulticide applications are safely conducted with EPA-approved pesticides. These applications are based on surveillance and designed to target nuisance or disease-vectoring mosquitoes. We regularly test mosquitoes and take appropriate measures to prevent them from developing resistance.

Industry Leading Mosquito Management Services

VDCI is a mosquito control services company. Mosquito control is all we do. We do not sell products or equipment. We professionally execute the services that are needed to protect public health and improve the quality of life for communities and the people we serve. We do this by controlling mosquito populations in the most cost effective, scientific, and environmentally responsible ways available.

Data Collection, GIS Mapping, and Reporting

A keystone of the Integrated Mosquito Management approach is managing data. Every activity that is performed at VDCI is entered into our proprietary database for analysis and reporting. We use GPS equipment and technology in combination with our GIS department to put all our data into maps and reports. These reports are used both for our internal analysis and our presentation to customers and citizens within the boundaries that we serve.

Ground Services for Mosquito Control
Mosquito control begins with surveillance, which helps us understand population dynamics and species distribution. When mosquito larvae are detected in an area, we use environmentally sound biological products, when possible, to eliminate the problem. And when necessary, non-biological control methods are utilized. Once it has been determined that mosquito populations have reached unacceptable levels, or the risk of mosquito-borne illness has become imminent, adulticides are carefully applied in the safest and most environmentally friendly way possible. Our advanced spray technology ensures the proper droplet size and accurate pesticide placement.

Aerial Services for Mosquito Control
VDCI has the largest fleet of aircraft in the world specifically dedicated to mosquito control. Aerial applications may be the only way to break the mosquito breeding cycle in emergency situations or when mosquito populations are abnormally high. All of our aircraft are equipped with the Wingman® GX spray optimization software and the AIMMS-20 onboard meteorological probe, the most advanced system designed specifically for mosquito control.
