It is the goal of the Desplaines Valley Mosquito Abatement District to reduce mosquito
annoyance and disease transmission by the mosquitoes using the safest and most
environmentally sound methods available. It is our responsibility to do this while protecting the
public and the environment from inappropriate risks. The district uses a variety of methods
and approaches to accomplish this task.
It is through the monitoring of weather conditions and the surveillance of larval and adult mosquito populations that the district learns where a mosquito problem might occur and how large it might be. With this information, the district can determine the type of mosquito control that is appropriate at what time, and to coordinate efforts between the different control divisions.
