The Mosquito and Forest Pest Management program (formerly Gypsy Moth & Mosquito Control) is a branch of the Environmental Services Division in the Department of Public Works.
A mission of the program is to survey, reduce and control populations when possible, of mosquitoes and forest pests. This occurs through the use of an integrated pest management approach. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
