Mosquito Control Efforts

To prevent and/or reduce the potential for mosquito disease transmission through the use of Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM):


  • Chemical Control- kill larvae (larvicding) and adult (adulticiding) mosquitoes to keep larvae from hatching and adult mosquitoes from biting people.


  • Biological control- placing of mosquito fish to eat the larvae.


  • Education – teaching how to reduce mosquito breeding sites around the home and avoiding mosquito bites.


  • Source Reduction- reducing a major breeding ground for mosquitoes by collecting tires.

  •        Active monitoring of mosquitoes, including West Nile Virus
