Palm Beach County's warm tropical air and above average rain fall create the perfect environment for insects to multiply. ERM's Mosquito Control staff work hard to enhance the health and quality of life by reducing mosquito populations. Staff use chemical treatment, hormonal and bacterial larvaciding, and biological control methods. Working closely with other agencies like the Health Department, our staff act as first responders to mosquito-borne disease outbreaks as well as coordinate day to day interactions with residents on how to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in their backyard.
