Summit Mosquito Abatement is a special service district in Summit County that utilizes a variety of methods and practices to locate and control local mosquito populations within Summit County. Its goal is to reduce mosquitoes to acceptable levels while minimizing environmental impact. The district spends most of its time and resources in four main areas: surveillance, larviciding, adulticiding, and record keeping.  Bryan Stephens, Summit Mosquito’s District Manager spoke with us about the importance of this service, the potential diseases mosquitos carry and what homeowners can do to help reduce mosquito populations on their property.
