Burlington County Mosquito Control 

Burlington County, as the largest county in New Jersey, has large areas that have potential to breed mosquitoes. These areas include, farm land, wetlands (fresh and salt water), home yards, stormwater facilities, and sewer plants. These areas need to be addressed as best as possible to control mosquitoes and the viruses they can spread. One of the best ways to control a pest over a large area is by approaching the area as an area-wide integrated pest management. Integrated Pest Management is an approach that focuses on multiple sources to control a pest; while area wide tries to group it all together and get everyone working at once.
