Novel Coronavirus and Mosquito Information

To date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus/COVID-19 could been transmitted by mosquitoes. 

Special mosquito control spray operations are posted on the Mosquito Control Schedule and Maps page. 

Mid-August and September are peak times for West Nile virus activity. Residents and visitors are encouraged to protect themselves from mosquito bites by using repellents, wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants, limiting outdoor activities at dusk and dawn and dumping water from any containers around the home.

The Division provides mosquito control and tick identification 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.
