Maryland Department of Agriculture Mosquito Control Program

The Maryland Department of Agriculture provides mosquito control services, in cooperation with participating governments, as authorized by State Law. For information on this program, please visit the Maryland Department of Agriculture website at http://mda.maryland.gov/plants-pests/pages/mosquito_control.aspx

Procedures to be enrolled in the annual Mosquito Control Program:

  1. Complete the annual Mosquito Spraying Application form.
  2. Complete the annual Community Application for Adult Mosquito Control if enrolling a community.
  3. Return completed forms to:
    Cecil County
    200 Chesapeake Blvd., Suite 1100
    Elkton, MD 21921
    or
    Fax to (410) 996-5206
    or
    Email to sscholl@ccgov.org.
  4. Mosquito personnel will then contact you to visit the sight, do surveillance* and take action if appropriate. This procedure may take several days.

*Surveillance may consist of light traps, wet area assessment, larva counts or suggestions on what you can do to reduce the problem. If needed, an application of ultra low volume insecticide may be done at that time.

Note: If you are not home at the time of the visit, an action report will be left.

Enrollment commences annually in April and continues through the spraying season. Spraying usually begins in late May or early June and continues through September. Spraying may continue into October if conditions warrant.
