Each mosquito season, the Douglas County Health Department takes these pest control steps:

  • Reducing mosquito breeding by removing standing water and applying larvicide to sites that cannot be emptied or drained. Larvicides are pesticides that affect only mosquitoes and are harmless to people.
  • Working with the public to reduce standing water through public outreach/education and by investigating complaints about mosquito breeding sites and standing water.
  • Monitoring mosquito populations and disease. When monitoring data shows an increased risk of disease, the Health Department will notify the public and educate on the risk.
  • Bird collection will start on June 1st. Testing will only be CORVID birds (e.g. Bluejays, Crows, Magpies, etc.

If you need to contact the Douglas County Health Department about mosquito issues or West Nile Virus bird collection, please contact 402-444-7481.
