Mosquito Control

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.

Request Spraying & Report Problem Areas: 740-454-9741 extension 300. If you live in Muskingum County you may request spraying for your neighborhood. Call the number listed above.

Prevent Mosquito-borne Disease
You can reduce your risk of being infected with mosquito-borne illness/disease by using insect repellant and wearing protective clothing to prevent mosquito bites.
