Mosquito Mitigation

The Town of Erie contracts with Vector Disease Control International (VDCI) to provide the Town with mosquito management: larval (water treatments), Adult mosquito surveillance and trapping, and fogging.

Mitigation efforts have concluded for the 2020 season, and will likely resume in Spring of 2021. Although the risk of being infected with West Nile Virus abates from September - March, public health officials still encourage residents to take necessary precautions to protect themselves.

Weekly Fogging

Vector Disease Control provides the Town of Erie with general information on weekly trap and fog activities within neighborhoods. If you wish to be notified directly, and in advance of a fogging, subscribe to fog notifications from VDCI
