Mosquito Surveillance


Crawford County Health Department announces an upcoming mosquito surveillance aimed at  reducing the disease-carrying mosquito population in our area.  

Starting this week, our department will be working with Driftless Region Vector Control LLC to  canvass the area to identify possible mosquito breeding sites. This proactive measure is part of our  ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Niles virus and La  Crosse viral encephalitis.  

Because of health problems presented by the species of mosquitoes that use tires and other  containers as habitat, you may receive a public health reminder if Driftless Region Vector Control  LLC identifies potential human health hazards. 

We encourage residents to assist in this effort by surveying their own areas and empty, remove,  cover, or flip any receptacle that could hold water such as potted plants, wading pools, buckets,  etc., properly discard unwanted tires & keep wanted tires inside or under cover.  

For more information, please contact Crawford County Health Department at 608-326-0229.
