Our Mission

… is to help protect the citizens that live within the Bannock County Mosquito Abatement District boundaries from disease-carrying mosquitoes such as the Culex species, which is the primary vector for the West Nile Virus, to improve the quality of life for District constituents by managing mosquito populations to prevent a nuisance and or economic loss to areas of the district, and to help protect District animal and livestock populations from mosquito-borne disease or parasites.

The Bannock County Mosquito Abatement District is a division of Bannock County Public Works.

Bannock County Mosquito Abatement District operates the Adult Mosquito treatment program primarily based on surveillance results. When adult mosquito trap counts reach pre-determined thresholds, Bannock County will send fogging trucks to control adult mosquito populations. In some situations, a barrier spray may be the best choice for control.

Although we try to follow a general schedule to effectively cover all areas of the District, sometimes an adjustment is necessary to address a large hatch-off or infestation. Service Requests from County residents also impact the treatment program schedule. Weather and other environmental conditions play a very important role when determining whether or not to fog.

Facts About ULV Fogging

  • U.L.V. means Ultra Low Volume. Less than 1.75 ounces are used per acre with very small droplets.
  • Because of the low amounts of material used, beneficial insects such as lady bugs, damsel flies and honey bees are not harmed. Flying mosquitoes are the target.
  • In most cases, the adult flying mosquito control material used is Permithrin. Permithrin is short lived and breaks down within a few hours and in sunlight.
