SCHOOL PROGRAMS

An elementary school program for 3rd grade students was established to promote awareness and prevention of mosquitoes and the threat of their various borne diseases. Each year, Mosquito Control staff delivers award winning program in ten elementary schools to over 1000 students.  Armed with the animated “Jo Jo Mosquito” educational video and various "tools of the trade"; we teach students about mosquito biology, life cycles, food chains, and the importance of mosquito control. Per teachers' request, a segment on metamorphosis was also added in 2015.  The program is compatible with the Virginia public schools’ third grade Standards of Learning.
