West Nile Virus & Mosquito Control

To protect, promote and improve the health of our community

Mosquitoes often carry diseases that can be passed on to people, including West Nile virus (WNV), a potentially serious illness.  Approximately 80% of people who get infected with West Nile virus do not have any symptoms at all.  However, a small number (about 1 in 150) will develop a severe illness, called West Nile Encephalitis. The best way to protect yourself and your family from WNV is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.
