As part of our proactive approach to mosquito control, we have an instituted an annual inspection program of businesses that have potential mosquito issues. These businesses include salvage yards, junk yards, industrial, construction, and more. This goal of this program is to educate rather than regulate these business owners and managers. We choose to work with these businesses and help them to solve their mosquito and drainage issues. This program began in 2014 and already has already been successful in eradicating mosquito breeding habitat within the County. This program is particularly important where business and residential areas are adjacent for two reasons. First, because the potentially large amounts of mosquitoes coming from the businesses will fly over into the residential areas. Second, industrial and business areas are not controlled by ground spraying so mosquitoes in these areas must be controlled by other methods.
If you know of a business or industrial area that may benefit from an inspection or to report a mosquito annoyance in one of these areas, please call 757-890-3790.
