2017 Mosquito Control Plan

Aerial calibration is one of the first tasks accomplished by the program.  With aerial applications, Bay County can reach woodlots breeding mosquitoes that are otherwise very difficult or too large to treat.  Having the ability to utilize aircraft is an effective compliment to ground based activities.  Read more about the Bay County Mosquito Control Plan by Clicking Here
