The Benton County Mosquito Control District is dedicated to responsibly improving the quality of life and increasing public education in our area. The District accomplishes this by utilizing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies. IPM is designed to utilize cost-effective control measures to reduce mosquito populations and the diseases they potentially carry, while being environmentally sensitive.
Communication and cooperation with property owners, residents and governmental agencies are critical components in the effort to reduce mosquito populations. Benton County MCD strives to be open and responsive to our community.
