Welcome to the Camano Island Mosquito Control District!
Camano Island Mosquito Control District Continues to Protect Public Health During Coronavirus Outbreak
During this time, the mosquito district remains active monitoring and abating mosquitoes. Due to the social distancing guidelines we will not be performing service calls to individual properties. Most of our major mosquito producing areas are being monitored and treated as needed.
You can make substantial contributions to your own safety by following “the 3 D’s”:
• Drain: Empty out water containers at least once per week
• Dress: Wear long sleeves, long pants, and light-colored, loose-fitting clothing
• Defend: Properly apply an approved repellent such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon-eucalyptus or any other EPA-registered repellent
English Boom Preserve is one of the many areas that can now be enjoyed by everyone thanks in part to the Camano Island Mosquito Control District. The English Boom area was virtually unusable due to a severe mosquito infestation in 1995-96, The infestation affected many residents on the north end of Camano Island and was one of the reasons the mosquito district was formed. Mosquito larvae continue to thrive in this area. We have mapped mosquito larvae sites and continually monitor and abate mosquitoes using an Integrated Mosquito Management approach. Through our abatement activities we have kept the mosquito population in check allowing nearly bite free access to this beautiful part of Camano Island.
