COVID-19 Statement

The Desplaines Valley Mosquito Abatement District (DVMAD) cares about the health and well-being of our residents and employees. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DVMAD will be adapting operations to ensure we are providing service to the public in as safe and responsible a manner as possible. In order to comply with social distancing guidelines, we will be working with a reduced staff. While this will impact operations in many aspects, essential operations focusing on the monitoring and control of vector mosquitoes involved in West Nile Virus transmission to humans will remain unchanged.

Update - October 2020

All larval control operations have been completed for the 2020 season. Low levels of mosquito activity and West Nile Virus are still noted in mid-October, though has and continues to sharply decline due to cooling temperatures and shortening days as mosquitoes make their preparations for overwintering.

Adult Mosquito Control Operations

No adult mosquito control operations are scheduled at this time.

Adult mosquito control operations are scheduled only when mosquitoes are detected to be involved in elevated levels of a disease transmission cycle. In order to help fight against mosquitoes in your neighborhood, please check out our page on at home prevention.
