PLEASE HELP!
Announcement for Community Action for Mosquito Control – September 3, 2021
DUMP, DRAIN & DEFEND!
On September 1, 2021, another 4-6 inches of rain fell across Warren County.  We are asking for your help to reduce the potential mosquito populations that could hatch due to this rainfall.  The easiest way to eliminate mosquitoes is to get rid of standing water around your home and neighborhood. 
Please help us help you.  It is not possible for the Mosquito Commission to go through each yard.  Our nighttime treatments only kill the mosquitoes flying at that time.  Check your yards and neighborhoods for anything that holds water.  Dump the water from containers, such as buckets, kiddie pools, and plant saucers. Drain standing water from tarps and pool covers.   Recycle tires and other containers properly.   Keep lids on recycling and trash cans. Bird baths and pet dishes should be scrubbed weekly to eliminate mosquito eggs.   Clean up trash in your neighborhood.   Our staff is out daily treating natural mosquito habitats and we are asking for your help with the man-made habitats!

Defend yourself from mosquito bites by wearing repellent and securing window and door screens.   If one repellent does not work for you, try one with a different active ingredient.  Check the Centers of Disease Control website https://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/prevent-mosquito-bites.html for information about EPA approved repellents For more information please contact the Warren County Mosquito Control Commission at www.warrencountymosquito.org or call 908-453-3585

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

The Warren County Mosquito Commission relies on rainfall surveillance to guide larval mosquito control.  The daily precipitation maps provided by the Community Collaborative Rain Hail & Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) helps guide these efforts.   CoCoRaHS is a community based network of volunteers across the US and Canada that report daily precipitation from their home, school or work based rain gauges.
There are several areas in Warren County where there are currently no CoCoRaHS volunteers, for example Allamuchy, Independence, Phillipsburg, Lopatcong, and Pohatcong, etc.  However, more volunteers in any township, town or borough would be greatly appreciated. 
CoCoRaHS is great way to be involved with citizen science.  Training is provided online so that all readings and measurements are consistent.  The only thing you need to begin is an official rain gauge! Check out the link below or call our office for more information!
