Mercer County Mosquito Control will be treating larval mosquito habitats throughout the county by way of helicopter. Due to their size and inaccessibility by ground vehicles, these larval habitats are routinely treated when mosquitoes are present in standing water using a helicopter flying at low altitudes. You may see our helicopter flying near residential areas while positioning to approach nearby areas of standing water targeted for treatment.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT an area-wide adulticiding “MOSQUITO SPRAYING” activity.

Aerial larviciding includes the use of target-specific, biorational granules only released directly above standing water to help prevent larval mosquitoes from developing into biting adult mosquitoes.

Aircraft information:
