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.

Biological control agents of mosquito larvae include predatory fish, predatory aquatic invertebrates, and mosquito pathogens.
Chemical control refers to the use of specific compounds to either control immature mosquitoes (larvicides) or mature mosquitoes (adulticides).
