Community Education

Public education is a key component that is used to encourage the reduction and prevention of mosquito habitats on private and public property. The District’s education program teaches the public how to recognize, prevent, and suppress mosquito breeding on their property. This is accomplished through the distribution of brochures, fact sheets, newsletters, participation in local events and fairs, presentations to community organizations, newspaper and radio advertising, public service announcements, social media, and contact with District staff in response to service requests. Public education also includes school presentations that teach future adults to be responsible by preventing and/or eliminating mosquito breeding sources.
