NATIONAL MOSQUITO CONTROL AWARENESS WEEK 2017 

The week of June 25 – July 1, 2017 has been declared the twenty-first annual “National Mosquito Control Awareness Week” by the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA). The AMCA, an international organization of nearly 2,000 public health professionals, has been dedicated to preserving the public’s health and well-being through safe, environmentally sound mosquito control programs since 1935. During “Mosquito Week” the AMCA’s goal is to educate the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important service provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States and worldwide.

Grand River Mosquito Control District

The objective, of the Grand River Mosquito Control District, is to suppress mosquito populations, within the boundaries of the district, and in an environmentally responsible manner. A secondary objective is to monitor both larval and adult mosquito populations; to organize the population statistics, to evaluate organizational efforts, and to plan subsequent control strategies.

To inform our community, we have developed this web site to provide information on the different mosquito species and trends; our means to control the populations, and personal protection and prevention. We invite you to contact us, regarding any mosquito issues that exist in western Colorado.
