In many habitats, Aedes, Culex, Anopheles, Culiseta, and other genera can develop simultaneously. Habitats that support mixed-species mosquito development complicate both ecological descriptions for this group as well as determining immature stage-control solutions.

Examples of mixed-species scenarios:

Culiseta
Psorophora

Using biorational products to manage habitats with mixed species requires a flexible solution, particularly if field resources are limited and it’s difficult to identify the exact species of mosquito you are trying to control. Habitats such as these may contain multiple species at the same time (e.g. Anopheles/Culex in pastures), or at different times of the season (e.g., single-brood Aedes hatch, followed by Culex). VectoMax helps address these challenges by providing fast-acting, long-lasting, broad-spectrum mosquito larval control in a variety of habitats.
