It's Your #MosquitoMonday Update

The Health District wants to keep you informed on the latest information about mosquitoes.That's why we're providing you with this bi-weekly update on their activity. We also want to keep you in the loop on any disease detection in your area and if we'll be fogging as a result. 

It's our job to protect the public from potential health threats like mosquito-borne diseases, and by working with our cities, townships and villages we allow for more informed and protected residents!

Health District Launches New Website! 
The Health District recently launched their newly designed website offering residents an easier, more user-friendly way of viewing the wide variety of public health services - including information about mosquitoes!

Community observational survey results
Community Observational Surveys are complete. Results indicated that 6 out of every 10 households in the District have a form of mosquito harborage in 2017. The largest concern in 2017 is flower pots collecting standing water, which were found at over 30% of properties.
