Surveillance

Mosquito traps are set at over 150 sites across the county, including wastewater treatment plants, stormwater basins, recreational areas, and private residences. Samples are processed and species are identified, and vector species are tested for West Nile virus. To suppress populations of both vector and nuisance mosquitoes, technicians reduce mosquito habitat when possible. Larvicide and adulticide products are used after all other measures have been taken.
