Mosquito Treating Season Is Nearly Here

Summer weather in Minnesota means an increase of mosquitos, especially in wooded and wetland areas. This spring and summer, Metropolitan Mosquito Control District will be out conducting surveillance and treatment activities to reduce the risk of disease and annoyance in an environmentally-sensitive manner.

Some of the activities that MMCD may be doing in your community include:

  • Wetland surveillance - determining if ponds or swamps have mosquito larvae present.
  • Catchbasin surveillance - pulling off grates and inspecting neighborhood catch basins to determine if mosquito larvae are present.
  • Ground larval treatments - applying control materials to a wetland with a hand spreader or backpack.
  • Helicopter larval treatments - applying control materials to a wetland via helicopter.
  • Catchbasin treatments - applying control materials to neighborhood catchbasins.
  • Setting or collecting traps - surveillance helps MMCD determine where and what types of mosquitoes are active.

At times MMCD employees may need to cross private property for access to check and treat areas for mosquito larvae. MMCD management asks the community to please stay several feet away from field staff and ensure children and pets are kept at a distance. If you have questions about mosquito control activities or concerns about an employee, please call the MMCD front desk at (651) 645-9149 or visit MMCD.org.
