Come visit us at our new location at 1075 South Ave W on the Missoula Fairgrounds.
We are in active control season right now. The Mosquito District is actively monitoring mosquito populations and the diseases they carry. If you have any questions or concerns please contact: Layne Von Lanken at 406-370-6768
The truck speed must be maintained at 10-12 mph according to label directions. You may not see the truck come down your road but the fog will! We use the wind direction and speed to help move the Ultra Low Volume mist into yards.
YOU can help by dumping out any standing water in your yard, old tires, pails, birdbaths, etc. Keeping weeds and grass mowed short and making sure to dry out your lawn completely in between watering. Our traps indicate we have mostly flood water mosquitoes occurring in Lolo and they can be more aggressive.
Lastly we have completed some much needed maintenance on the fogging unit so we expect some more effective outcomes moving forward.
Thank you for your support!
A Mosquito Control District is an area with set boundaries approved by the County Commissioners where the landowners have agreed to develop and administer a program for the abatement and alleviation of mosquitoes in their area. The purpose of a Mosquito Control District is to manage and control mosquito pests and prevent diseases such as West Nile and Equine Encephalitis while providing for the protection of humans, livestock, pets, songbirds, and other wildlife The County Commissioners appoint a mosquito control board that governs the district and create a mosquito control fund by levying taxes within the district to cover expenses and projects in the area.
For more information on how to form a Mosquito Control District, please review the Montana Code Annotated sections from 7-22-2401 through 7-22-2513.
Currently, there is only the Lolo Mosquito Abatement District in Missoula County.
