CONTROL IN HARRISON COUNTY
Indiana State Department of Health has provided funding to allow us to purchase Mosquito
Dunks, a larvicidal product. The active ingredient is Bacillus
thuringiensis israelensis, a
bacterial spore that it safe for animals and fish. It kills
mosquitoes by scratching up their stomach and intestinal linings,
making them unable to ingest food.
Dunks are free to the public as long as our supply holds out.
Simply call the Health Department at 738-3237 and let us know how
large your area of standing water is. We will calculate how many
Dunks you need and provide them to you at no charge.
County does not spray insecticide to kill adult mosquitoes.
However, your town may. Contact your town hall for more
more information on mosquitoes and what you can do to protect your
family, click here.
