Mosquito Control


The Mosquito Control Section provides a direct service to approximately 2,100 communities in 16 Maryland counties. The primary goal of this program is to prevent the occurrence of mosquito-borne disease in humans, pets and livestock. Mosquito control is an economic necessity in some parts of Maryland dependent on outdoor tourism during the summer. The program relies on surveys and monitoring of the larval and adult mosquito populations to coordinate control activities. Control techniques include breeding source reduction, public education, biological control and insecticide applications from aircraft or ground equipment.

Unscheduled Spray Activities

   College Park, Prince George's County, Maryland

       We will be doing an off-schedule spraying of the Hollywood section of College Park on Sunday, July 12 at or just after dusk (approximately 7:45-8pm), weather permitting. We obtained extremely high numbers of adult mosquitoes in a trap set Thursday, July 9.

     The City of College Park will notify residents via an email blast and other means about this spraying.
     This section of College Park is EAST of Rhode Island Avenue, SOUTH of Edgewood Road, NORTH of Branchville Rd and WEST of the railroad tracks. This is the ONLY section of College Park which will be sprayed on Sunday. If weather does not permit spraying on Sunday, the area will be sprayed on the regular night, Wednesday, next week. Also, if it is sprayed Sunday but counts are still very high afterwards, we will spray that section again on Wednesday.
