The Skamania County Mosquito Control District faces some challenges due to the large number of mosquito producing acres. For many reasons, from staff limitations to restricted access sites, many of the mosquitoes produced in Skamania County are never detected or abated. As a result, mosquitoes looking for resting sites may end up at your home. This is especially true in the rural areas. So the district provides a free service to reduce mosquito numbers for residents in the district who have a mosquito problem around the home. Residents may contact us to schedule a service request. Information about your residence and your problem will be taken and responded to.  We will most likely come out to your home to make an assessment. A recommendation will be made regarding what action(s) should be taken based on the findings.  Often we can find a water source on or near your property producing mosquitoes and can eliminate it, solving the problem.

Please contact us to submit a mosquito control service request.

LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER

April 4, 2017

AND IT BEGINS

Mosquito Season 2017 will be challenging.  We have had record rainfall and extremely high river levels, which are in flood stages in a lot of areas.  Access points are currently difficult to access due to the amount of debris down from the winter storms and high water.  All this water is shaping up to give us flood water mosquitoes this year.  The District will be working to access and monitor keys areas that have and do create flood water resulting in mosquito hatches.

We are currently seeing some over winter mosquitoes on the few warm days we have had.  Make no mistake these nuisances mosquitoes will be looking for a location to lay eggs.  Of course with all the water they don’t have to look far.  Please take some time and assess your yards for ANYTHING that HOLDS WATER, planters, gutters, buckets, tires (especially tires), toys, and gutters.  These areas are perfect for a mosquito to lay eggs and make your yard miserable.
