Overview
 Mercer County Mosquito Control (MCMC) has been in operation for over 80 years in order to protect the residents of the county from nuisance levels of mosquitoes, and diseases that may be transmitted by them.

We realize that it is nearly impossible to eliminate all mosquitoes, as a result, we employ an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) that keeps mosquito populations at tolerable levels. Our approach concentrates on surveillance, water management and prevention, education, and control of mosquitoes using safe integrated management with minimal impact on the environment.

Our website provides information on our operating philosophy and approach, current up to date happenings of our Agency, general information on the insecticides that we use, homeowner information, an inspection request page, links to other related web sites and existing information on West Nile virus. MCMC personnel have been conducting surveillance and control measures long before the recent introduction of West Nile virus, and will continue to provide professional services for many years to come.
