What We Do

 

Control Operations

Biological/ Biorational Control

 Biological control is the use of natural enemies—predators, parasites, pathogens, and competitors—to control mosquitoes. Natural enemies against mosquitoes include mosquito fish (Gambusia sp.), bats, copepods, etc. Biorational pesticides  referred to amicrobial pest control agents include such as bacteria, fungi, viruses

Chemical Control

Chemical control is the use of mosquito control products. These products are used only when needed and in combination with other approaches for more effective, long-term control. The district aims to select and apply products in a way that minimizes their possible harm to people and the environment.

Physical Control

Physical control makes the environment unsuitable for mosquitoes. Physical controls include barriers such as screens, bed nets, and clothing (long sleeves, pants, etc.) as well as environmental manipulation such as draining a swamp, filling in tree holes, etc.

Physical Control
Physical Control
Cultural Control

Cultural controls are practices that reduce mosquito establishment, reproduction, dispersal, and survival. For example, removing water from containers, trash clean-up, personal protection with insect repellent, etc.​
