Protect Yourself and Your Family from Mosquito Bites!
More and more West Nile virus is emerging statewide in mosquitoes, crows and people. Please take precautions to protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites. Use an insect repellent, limit time outdoors when and where mosquitoes are biting, especially at dawn and dusk; wear long sleeves and long pants and consider treating clothing with permithrin; empty containers holding water on your property.
For more information on insect repellents visit http://www.cdc.gov/westnile/faq/repellent.html
If you find a dead crow, please report it to your local health department as soon as possible. If the crow is in an early stage of decay, it can be collected and submitted to the NJ Department of Health for West Nile virus testing.

The Board provides mosquito control and tick-testing services to the residents of Monmouth County. Our strategy for mosquito control relies on an Integrated Pest Management approach focusing on controlling mosquito larvae versus broad control of adult mosquitoes. Much of our efforts involve source control-- reducing or eliminating the standing water where mosquito larvae flourish. Where possible, the Board works with nature to control mosquitoes by introducing fish that eat mosquito larvae or cleaning a stream to improve water flow. Our use of pesticides is based on surveillance data and follows state and federal regulations as well as recommendations provided by Rutgers University.
