Fly problems are dealt with on a service request basis. In most cases fly problems involve a sanitation problem. Staff will provide on-site assessment, recommend actions necessary to reduce the breeding problem, and treat the area as necessary.
The Clackamas County Vector Control District is responsible for control of flies and mosquitoes within Clackamas County. Control of these vectors is not intended to be total eradication since the concept of total eradication is unachievable and environmentally unsound, requiring unacceptable quantities of pesticide. The goals of the District, therefore, are to limit the number of vectors thus reducing annoyance and the likelihood of vector borne disease for persons living in the District.
