Mosquito Control for a Safe and Quality Environment

COVID-19 Operational Updates

At this time there is nothing that suggests mosquitoes are involved in the transmission of any coronavirus.

Our office is currently open during normal business hours and our operations have continued, uninterrupted, during this pandemic.

Integrated Mosquito Management Plan (IMM)

The TASD practices, promotes, and firmly believes in utilizing integrated mosquito management (IMM) techniques for our operations. Utilizing IMM philosophies means that we approach the task of mosquito control from a holistic perspective: seeking to prevent and control mosquito populations at every possible level of their development.

The IMM approach employed by the TASD focuses on surveillance, source reduction, larval mosquito control, adult mosquito control, education, and community outreach. No single phase of the IMM approach is more important than another. Each aspect of this approach is integral to reducing and controlling mosquito populations in the most efficient and environmentally conscious manner possible. IMM uses methods that, when followed correctly, are safe and have been scientifically shown to reduce mosquito populations.

Larval Mosquito Control:
For water that contains mosquito larvae and cannot be drained or dumped, TASD professional can use a variety of techniques and products to reduce mosquitoes before they become biting adults. Learn more about our Larval Mosquito Control Program >>

Spray Schedule:
Use our interactive maps and daily updated list to see if we are conducting an adult control treatment near you.

Water Management & Source Reduction:
Mosquito larvae need water to survive. TASD professionals and homeowners can remove sources of standing water to reduce mosquito larvae before they become flying adult mosquitoes.
Learn more about our Water Management & Source Reduction Program>>

Adult Mosquito Control:
Adult mosquitoes are not only a potential nuisance, but also can carry life threating diseases. When surveillance data dictates TASD will respond to high population levels and elevated diseases risk by utilizing a variety of adult control techniques. Learn more about our Adult Mosquito Control Program >>

Education & Outreach:
TASD is dedicated to providing educational resources for residents in Lucas County about mosquito related topics. Learn more about our Education & Outreach >>

Biologists at TASD utilize a variety of surveillance techniques and traps to gain an understanding of mosquito population dynamics, disease risk, and invasive species presence. All the data collected through this program is used to make informed control decisions.

West Nile Virus activity is increasing. In response, TASD will be increasing control efforts for adult mosquitoes this week. View the treatment map on our website here: www.tasd-mosquitoes.org/control-operations/#spray

The best way to reduce your risk for mosquito-borne disease is to prevent bites in the first place. Do this by wearing loose-fitting and light-colored clothing that covers your skin, applying an EPA-approved insect repellent according to the instructions on the container, and going inside during peak mosquito activity (dawn and dusk).
