Mosquito (Insect) Vector Control

The Bucks County Department of Health’s (BCDH) Disease Vector Control Program works to protect the population of Bucks County from mosquito infestation, nuisance mosquito bites and potential mosquito borne disease through enforcement of the County's Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Disease Vector Control. The Department conducts an extensive mosquito control program during the warmer months of the year, see West Nile Virus program.

Residents and property owners can also help prevent mosquito infestations and bites by eliminating standing water which promotes mosquito breeding around their homes. They can further reduce the threat of mosquito borne disease by using a repellant when going outdoors. Long sleeve shirts and pants can offer protection from bites as well as limiting time outdoors at dawn or dusk when mosquitoes are most active. The below diagram shows places which are the most problematic around homes or businesses.

The Department investigates mosquito problems via written complaints (form SA-2). These complaint forms should be returned to the nearest District Office.
