Mosquito Surveillance

mosquito trap

The goal of our program is to prevent mosquito problems before they happen. We monitor mosquito populations throughout the county by regularly inspecting all bodies of water known to harbor mosquito larvae. We also monitor adult mosquito populations through the use of special traps located throughout the county. Weekly mosquito counts at each location are compared with historical averages in order to locate problem areas where control efforts should be concentrated and avoid unnecessary treatments elsewhere.
