Controlling Mosquitoes in Your Municipality

As summer approaches, and concerns over the Zika virus grow, DEP’s Office of Mosquito Control Coordination is pleased to pass along to local government officials a few suggestions about how to reduce the mosquito population in your community.

The Zika virus is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a tropical, urban-dwelling mosquito. Although this species of mosquito has occasionally been found in New Jersey in very small numbers, it is unlikely to establish a permanent population in the state due to our moderate climate. But with concern growing about the Zika virus, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is working closely with county mosquito agencies (which have the lead for mosquito control in New Jersey) to ensure that they have the resources needed to identify and, if found, control this mosquito.

The most effective way to reduce much of the mosquito population (including the Aedes aegypti and its important relative the Asian tiger mosquito) is to eliminate their breeding grounds – standing water. Even a bottle cap filled with water can be an attractive mosquito breeding ground as they are both known as container breeders and thus prefer to lay their eggs in buckets, tires, and saucers under potted plants, for example.

Your municipal employees can help support the work of your county mosquito agencies by a few, easy-to-follow steps:
