Metro mosquito control activity to start

Metropolitan Mosquito Control District (MMCD) trucks, helicopters and staff will be out in neighborhoods and parks this spring and summer working to reduce mosquito-borne disease and annoyance.

Each year, MMCD field staff monitor and treat wetlands that breed mosquitoes with a fleet of trucks and helicopters. Many of MMCD’s seasonal staff begin working in April and residents of the seven county metro area may notice the green or white trucks with the MMCD logo or staff on bikes or on foot wearing brightly colored “Mosquito Control” shirts.


At times MMCD employees may need to cross private property for access to check and treat areas for mosquito larvae. MMCD management asks the community to please stay several feet away from field staff and ensure children and pets are kept at a distance.

If you have questions about mosquito control activities or concerns about an employee, call the MMCD front desk at 651-645-9149 or visit mmcd.org.
