What We Do

The District is committed to using science based Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to monitor vector populations and disease presence through surveillance, targeted product applications and source reduction through inspection and vector education for our residents through community outreach. These components create the foundation of the District’s comprehensive vector control program.

Surveillance

Surveillance

SURVEILLANCE

Surveillance is one of most important components to our operation. We use best practices to locate, collect, identify and test mosquitoes. Surveillance helps to monitor mosquito populations for abundance and disease presence. These efforts allow for us to make targeted treatment decisions in real time.

Source Reduction

Source Reduction

SOURCE REDUCTION

Source reduction is the elimination of breeding sites. Typically, these are manmade sources such as unkept swimming pools, ornamental ponds and other debris capable of holding water. This is one of the most effective methods of mosquito control.

Larval Control

Larval Control

LARVAL CONTROL

Larval control is the application of products that help reduce mosquito populations by either killing or preventing the growth of mosquito larvae while they are confined within standing water sources. Larval control applications are a logical next step when source reduction is not possible.

Adult Mosquito Control

Adult Mosquito Control

ADULT MOSQUITO CONTROL

Adult mosquito control is our last line of defense and is strictly regulated. We use this to immediately suppress the number of adult mosquitoes in an area only when several specific thresholds are met such as overabundance or a threat of disease transmission has been detected based on our surveillance data.

Yes, we have mosquitoes- and lots of them! Our traps have shown an increase in mosquitoes which isn’t all that surprising considering the amount of rain we have received. No measure we implement will get them all, but we are working tirelessly to target and treat areas where our traps identify the largest increase. While we prioritize these locations, please understand that you will likely see mosquitoes, but you can take some precautions yourself: rid standing water when possible and wear insect repellent. The mosquito populations will subside with a combination of efforts currently underway and a little bit of help from Mother Nature. Be advised that we will be completing adulticide operations the next couple of evenings when weather permits. ... See MoreSee Less

Articles & Updates

Educating the public about the life-cycle of mosquitoes and the role they play as potential vectors is a critical component of how we protect our residents. Often times, mosquito breeding sites are cryptic and difficult to spot, even by seasoned professionals. When equipped with the right information, residents become great assets in helping to manage mosquito populations within their own communities by eliminating breeding sites and educating their neighbors.

Homeowner Tips

Mosquito control can often be a community effort. Residents are encouraged to look after their own property and remove standing water, especially after a rain event. The best way to eliminate mosquitoes is to get rid of their breeding habitats.
