Free Mosquito Dunks Available for Pools

Free Mosquito Dunks Available for Pools

Rockland Daily Staff

As part of the continued Larval Mosquito Control program and with summer winding down, the Rockland County Department of Health wants to remind residents that mosquitoes will continue to breed into the fall. For those closing swimming pools, free Mosquito Dunks are available from the Health Department for outdoor pick-up. Mosquito Dunks are available (while supplies last) to assist private homeowners with unused or un-maintained swimming pools to eliminate mosquito breeding. 

The Larval Mosquito Control program focuses on reducing Rockland's mosquito population at the larval stage. Larval control is performed during the spring and summer months by identifying and monitoring over 1,000 mosquito-breeding sites and approximately 50,000 road-side catch basins throughout the County. These sites are treated on an as-needed basis by Department staff. In an attempt to minimize pesticide use, biological mosquito control is employed in the form of free giveaways to the public, including Mosquito Dunks. 

Call us at 845-364-3173 or email WNV@co.rockland.ny.us  to arrange to pick up.
