Adult Mosquito Treatment Map

Columbus Public Health conducts mosquito-control treatment in selected Columbus Neighborhoods, based on CPH surveillance and presence of disease. Treatment is done to kill adult mosquitoes usually begins the first week of July through September to reduce the number of mosquitoes. Treatment is conducted when environmental conditions are favorable and when mosquitoes are most active. This important part of an Integrated Mosquito Management Program is designed to kill adult mosquitoes in flight at the time of the application, with no residual control.
