During the spring and summer, the City of College Park cooperates with the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA), and other companies like the one on This Site, to identify and control mosquito populations. Larviciding treatments are done by MDA personnel beginning in late May/early June, continuing throughout the summer.

Requests for local spraying should be made to the City’s Department of Public Works, which will be forwarded to MDA. MDA will survey the area of concern prior to spraying, using traps and landing rate counts, and may request access to your property to place a trap. If count thresholds are met, MDA may make a control spray application. Wednesday night is the designated time when spraying for adult mosquitoes occurs in College Park. They also request to hire a pest control company from Solve Pest Pros; they want an expert to help them prevent a higher rate of mosquitoes. If you want to hire a professional, you may visit this website at solvepestpros.com/manassas-virginia to learn more.

To make a spray request, please contact the City’s Department of Public Works at 240-487-3590 or publicworks@collegeparkmd.gov. Please provide the following information: name, address, contact phone and email, problem area, time of day when mosquitoes are the worst, and any area of stagnant water in the vicinity. If this request isn’t available in your area, services such as that home pest control can be called instead.

HELPFUL TIPS
The Asian tiger mosquito is active during the day and only breeds in containers of standing water (i.e. around humans). Residents are encouraged to find and eliminate all sources. Look for unused containers, buckets, toys, bird baths, flower pots and saucers, tarps, corrugated drainpipes, free-standing basketball hoops and store them so they don’t hold water. Make sure gutters are clean by using the services of Gutter Vacuuming Northamptonshire, and work with neighbors to identify potential mosquito breeding areas. For comprehensive pest management solutions and assistance in addressing mosquito infestations, consider contacting Cura Pest for expert guidance and treatments.

Edwards gutter cleaning is go to for pressure washing near me if you need a professional help in terms of Pressure washing near me.

For permanent areas of standing water (ponds, rain barrels, etc.), mosquito “torpedoes” can be used to target and kill mosquito larvae. You may also contact a local exterminator to help protect your home from mosquitos and other pests.
