Integrated Mosquito Management

The TCMAD practices an Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) approach to controlling mosquitoes and the diseases they may carry.

We support the management of vector populations when and where necessary by means of an integrated program designed to benefit or to have minimal adverse effects on people, domestic animals, wildlife and the environment. This integrated pest management policy recognizes that vector populations cannot always be eliminated, but often must be suppressed to tolerable levels for the well being of humans, domestic animals and wildlife. Selection of scientifically sound suppression methods must be based upon consideration of what is ecologically and economically in the long-term interest of humankind.

The TCMAD follows these principles:

All methods and materials used by the District are based on these principles.
