The Commission 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 Commission 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.
