Document Description
The Integrated Vector Management Program of the Marin/Sonoma Mosquito and Vector Control District is a long-standing, ongoing program of surveillance and control of mosquitoes and other vectors of human disease and discomfort. The program consists of six types of activities: 1) Surveillance for vector populations, vector habitats, disease pathogens, and public distress associated with vectors; 2) Public Education to encourage and assist reduction or prevention of vector habitats on private and public property; 3) Management of vector habitat, especially through water control and maintenance or improvement of channels, tide gates, levees, and other water control facilities, etc. ("Physical Control"); 4) Applications of herbicides and other forms of Vegetation Management to improve surveillance or reduce vector populations; 5) Rearing, stocking, and provision to the public of the "mosquito fish"; application of the bacterium or fungus; and possibly use of other predators or pathogens of vectors ("Biological Control"); 6) Application of non-persistent selective insecticides to reduce populations of larval or adult mosquito and other invertebrate threats to public health, and rodenticides to control rats ("Chemical Control").
