Mosquitoes threaten public health by spreading diseases that can cause severe illness. A front line defense against mosquitoes is public education. Taking steps to increase community knowledge about the dangers of mosquito-borne diseases and proactive mosquito management methods can make a significant impact on public health.
These education efforts can be further supported by more large-scale solutions that target mosquitoes at all stages of their lifecycle. Learn about the many approaches to public education and the long-term impact public awareness can have on the success of mosquito management programs.
