Adulticide Program

Summary:

Site-specific applications to control mosquito adults and reduce risk from mosquito-borne diseases.

Aspects:

When adult mosquito populations reach intolerable levels, truck mounted sprayers are used to reduce the adult mosquito level. We has worked diligently over the past 30+ years to achieve the goal of reducing the dependency on adulticiding (spraying) by increasing the emphasis on larval control, public education, source reduction (tire recycling) and ditch maintenance.

Goals:

CMMCP continues to strive towards its goal to reduce mosquito exposure to the public, and the potential for disease transmission by mosquitoes, by utilizing proven, sound mosquito control techniques. Our staff receives constant training, our fleet is continuously updated with the state of the art equipment, and we review our practices and procedures each year to adapt to the new strategies that are introduced in our field. Training, experience and common sense dictate our response in any given situation. Advances in mosquito control techniques, the introduction of new products and equipment, and changes in laws and regulations may necessitate the revisions of our policies and procedures.
