While mosquito bites are often harmless, some mosquitoes may transmit diseases and viruses such as malaria, dengue virus and the Zika virus. When mosquitoes threaten public health, the United States Environmental Protection Agency may apply pesticides known as adulticides. Adulticides, which can be used to control existing mosquito populations and combat an outbreak of mosquito-borne disease, may be applied by aircraft or via trucks on the ground that have been equipped with mounted sprayers. The EPA notes that adulticides, when applied according to the instructions on the label, pose no risks of concern to the general population or the environment.
