Mosquito Control Activities

There are several illnesses/diseases transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. The most common in our area is West Nile virus. However, in 2016, Zika virus has also shown in Ohio in people who have returned from parts of the world where Zika virus has been spreading rapidly. ZMCHD provides mosquito control activities to reduce the spread of these viruses.
