|The Colusa Mosquito Abatement Districts mission is to protect
the publics health from vector borne diseases and nuisance,
through a comprehensive mosquito and vector control program.
The Colusa Mosquito Abatement District has been serving the
people of Colusa and surrounding areas for more than 60 years.
Established in 1958, The District has gone through many
changes in the mosquito control industry. The District currently
uses advanced control equipment and products which are
registered with the EPA, and follow a strict Integrated Pest
Management program. The certified personnel have the
responsibilities to maintain mosquito populations to low levels,
within the Districts 160 square miles.
|Information to the Public
|The District asks the public to help by inspecting homes and yards thoroughly and remove
any standing water that may cause mosquito production. By a thorough inspection of the
premises, various standing water situations could be found, such as fish ponds, bird baths,
tin cans, water cans, saucers under potted plants, old tires, clogged roof gutters,
abandoned pools, uncovered boats, leaking faucets, watering troughs, rain barrels, street
gutters, house cooling units, tree holes, and water in basements during wet years. Pumping
of these basements is very important as we progress into the mosquito season.
The District requests that the public refrain from over watering their lawns to the extent
that water will run off into the street gutters and remain standing. Any of these standing
water situations may be reduced by the home resident. If any problem is too large for the
resident to correct, they may call the District for help in resolving some problems.
