Mosquito Control and Prevention

What We Do

Mosquito control is a year-round effort! We work to reduce the mosquito population through:

  • Public education
  • Mosquito trapping and testing
  • Reduction of stagnant water
  • Use of larvicides
  • Other mosquito abatement techniques

Report Stagnant Water

Help us eliminate mosquitoes by reporting areas of stagnant water.

  1. Mosquito Prevention
  2. Bite Prevention
  3. Mosquito Viruses

The best way to prevent mosquitoes is to get rid of stagnant water. Environmental Health staff monitor and treat more than 50 public areas where water often collects.

We also depend on homeowners to eliminate common breeding grounds from their properties. This includes:

  • Kiddie pools
  • Flower pots
  • Bird baths
  • Decorative ponds
  • Trash and debris - especially old tires
