Can we eliminate mosquitoes?

No, mosquitoes live in many different habitats, and it is impossible to find and treat all of the places that they breed. Furthermore, mosquito control is not intended to eliminate mosquitoes. The goal of a mosquito control program is to reduce adult mosquito populations to a level that minimizes the possibility of people and animals getting sick from diseases associated with mosquitoes, and reduce biting to a level that most people find tolerable.

Limiting mosquito populations through active mosquito control is an essential public health function in Clackamas County.
