The Union County Vector Control District was created in June 1968 under provisions of the Oregon revised statues to provide a program for the relief from mosquitoes throughout Union County. The District is independently operated under the direction of a board made up of volunteers from Union County.

The primary objectives of Vector Control are to: 1. Protect the public from discomfort and adverse effects of mosquito bites; and 2. Minimize the risk of human exposure to mosquito born disease.

MOSQUITO CONTROL FACTS
  • Everyone benefits from mosquito control – ranchers, townsfolk and tourists.
  • District wide aerial application of Malathion is no longer possible due to state regulations and increasing potential of insect resistance.
  • The district is transitioning to “state-of-the-art” mosquito control techniques.
  • The new techniques include biological and larvicide control.
  • The new techniques have been very effective in the areas where they have been applied.
