National Mosquito Control Awareness Week
Release Date: June 22, 2009

News & Information: For Immediate Release:


            In honor of “National Mosquito Control Awareness Week,” the Sussex County Office of Mosquito Control will display exhibits at the Main Library located at 125 Morris Turnpike, Newton, New Jersey and at the County Administrative Building located at One Spring Street, Newton, New Jersey the week of June 22 through June 26, 2009.


According to the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA,) “National Mosquito Control Awareness Week educates the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important service provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States and worldwide.”


Sussex County residents are vital allies in the mosquito control effort and eliminating breeding sites around homes and businesses is critical in controlling the mosquito population. According to Jennifer Gruener, Superintendent of the Sussex County Office of Mosquito Control, “The mosquitoes breeding in your backyard are the same mosquitoes that are biting and may potentially carry diseases including West Nile virus. Pesticide use is small part of controlling the mosquito population; the primary goal is to continue biological control methods by means of mosquito-eating fish and source reduction by means of public awareness, education, and responsibility.


The displays will feature general mosquito control information, facts, and handouts.
