The District maintains a lab and outdoor rearing program for larvae eating fish, (Gambusia affinis), also known as “mosquito fish”, in all known suitable bodies of water in the District. Mosquito fish are delivered to residents in the District. For those residing outside the District, the fish can be picked up at the District office by appointment.
The District employs measures of control having the least effect on non-target organisms as well as stabilizing natural predator populations. NSVMAD staff is constantly looking into the newest Biological Control agents to be employed in their efforts to control mosquito larvae production that will also be safe for the environment.
Environmentally Friendly Larvicides
Environmentally friendly larvicides are applied utilizing aircraft and ground equipment when necessary.
