In an effort to update records, properties that have received mosquito surveillance and/or high priority invasive species control from Teton County Weed & Pest in the past may receive a letter in the mail this week to request written permission to continue control services. Control measures may have been taken in the form of larviciding standing water, adult mosquito trapping for West Nile virus sampling, or your neighborhood has requested ultra-low volume (ULV) adulticiding, in addition to, other invasive species control measures.
The form is due back to the Teton County Weed & Pest office by May 5, 2019. An electronic version of the form is available on our website as well, at this link.
All land parcels that produce or harbor mosquito species are offered free surveillance and control measures, only when landowner permission is given. The effective control of mosquito populations hinges on significant participation by our community. The Teton Weed & Pest surveillance program incorporates larval, adult and disease surveillance; local and area-wide cultural, biorational and chemical control measures (if needed); and education. Please help us keep Teton County as nuisance and disease-free as possible.
Please contact our office at (307)733-8419, if you have any further questions.
