We take part in public and school events to inform residents about mosquitoes, their life cycle and habitat, and how they spread diseases.
Residents are also informed about how the SCMAC program works and what services are offered.
By reducing the habitat of mosquitoes, expecially artificial, we can limit the spread mosquitoes, and thus disease.
Our annual tire drives is one such method.
Our Biology Department monitors mosquito, bird, and disease activity around the county. Equiptment and products are regularly tested and calibrated for efficiency.
By treating water during the day, we target the 2nd and 3rd statges of the mosquito life cycle. This proactive measure prevents mosquitoes from maturing into adults, thus limiting the spread of disease.
This is a reactive program targets mosquito adults. Our trucks spray during the night after sunset when the adults are most active. The ULV sprayers are calibrated to target only mosquitoes.
Our truck fitted with a Buffalo Turbine sprayer, treats public areas such as parks and golf course. Its spray creates a barrier between the most frequented areas and the woods or mosquito breeding habitat.
Citizens are encouraged to call SCMAC to report a mosquito problem in their area. These calls are used in conjunction with data from our trap network to determine where treatment will be conducted on a daily basis.
Each address is limited to two priority requests per year. With this type of service, the resident can request a specific day for their property to be treated.
Residents who are severely allergic to mosquito bites may qualify for our Medical Certification Program.
As part of our self-help larviciding program, SCMAC distributes Bti granules to most township/village offices in Saginaw Country. Briquettes can be acquired at certain stores.
Residents may request to forgo any form of mosquito control by SCMAC. We also work with beekeepers and organic farmers to ensure they are not sprayed.
