Mosquito Control

Reduce Your Risk to Family and Pets from the West Nile Virus

with a Family Tree and Turf Care Mosquito Program

The West Nile virus (WNV) is most commonly transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. You can reduce your risk of being infected with WNV by using insect repellent and wearing protective clothing to prevent mosquito bites. There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent WNV infection. Fortunately, most people infected with WNV will have no symptoms. About 1 in 5 people who are infected will develop a fever with other symptoms. Less than 1% of infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, neurologic illness.

What is CDC's position regarding the use of chemical mosquito control?

Chemical control measures are one part of a comprehensive and integrated mosquito management program. An integrated program is the most effective way to prevent and control mosquito-borne disease. An integrated mosquito management program should include several components:

  1. 1. surveillance (monitoring levels of mosquito activity, and where virus transmission is occurring),
  2. 2. reduction of mosquito breeding sites,
  3. 3. use of pesticides and biological methods to control both mosquito larvae and adult mosquitoes as indicated by surveillance results, and
  4. 4. community outreach and public education.
