Preventing the emergence of biting adult mosquitoes by applying control to the larval stage.
Monitoring adult mosquito populations to uncover new sites of larval development and assess the 
effectiveness of control.
Monitoring the spread of vector-borne diseases and prevent the occurrence of these diseases among
district residents.
Evaluating new pesticides and methods of control for mosquitoes.
Increasing public awareness of District services with an active educational program.
