Welcome To Our Resource Center 

Whether you represent a municipality, a mosquito abatement district, or county and state entities, you are responsible for protecting the private citizens from a variety of threats, including mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are undoubtedly a nuisance, but their ability to spread dangerous viruses also makes them the deadliest species in the world.

One of the most effective ways to limit mosquitoes is an integrated management (IMM) program that achieves lasting control by targeting mosquitoes at every stage of their lifecycle. Vector control programs are dynamic and customized for each public entity, but they are all built on modern surveillance technologies, public education, and the newest available research on vector biology.

Vector-Borne Diseases 🦟

#4 manage mosquitoes (1)Mosquitoes are one of the most adaptable insects on earth. This versatility can be attributed to their ability to reproduce in almost any natural or man-made body of water, whether that’s the cove of a stagnant pond or a small puddle in the sidewalk. By fully understanding the life cycle of these vectors, we can achieve safe and effective control.

Mosquitoes are responsible for more than one million deaths each year by transmitting dozens of vector-borne diseases like West Nile Virus, chikungunya, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever to humans and animals. As we learn more about these diseases, we can continue to develop new approaches for safety and prevention.  

 

Public Education 🦟

Public education is an important component of an effective IMM program. Mosquito control professionals can establish substantial control over mosquito populations through surveillance and pesticide applications, but these programs are most successful when supported by the efforts of private citizens. See how you can help.

 

 

Grants & Funding 🦟
