The purpose of the Alamosa Mosquito Control District is to use economic and enviromentally responsible practices while suppressing larval and adult mosquito populations within The District's boundaries. We have created this website to provide general mosquito management information, our control strategies, and services we provide. We invite you to navigate through this website and to contact us with any questions, comments or mosquito issues that are of concern.
**Positive West Nile Virus Detected In Mosquito Pools**
Total Positive Pools as of 8.30.23 - 35
West Nile Testing concluded for the season on 8.30.23
The 2023 Operational Season is winding down!
Standing water which creates mosquito production & habitat for the most part drying up. With the sun starting to go down sooner & the evenings getting cooler, the overall mosquito population is dwindling within the District.
Larvicide Crew is slowing down. They continue to check and treat the smaller amounts of standing water that remain in the District. We will conclude larvicide activity the week of September 11th -15th
Fog Truck Spraying: Done for the season. Our final night of spraying ended on September 1st. Fog truck spraying will begin again in 2024; probably around the end of May.
Though mosquito populations have significantly decreased, and fog truck spraying is no longer warranted, WNV can possibly still be present in the few lingering mosquitoes (INSIDE or OUTSIDE OF OUR DISTRICT). Please take the proper precautions to protect yourself when outside during mosquito activity & avoid bites by wearing bug spray and/or long pants & sleeves .
We DO NOT have an aerial program this year. Our pilot retired in late December of 2022. It has been difficult finding a replacement. AMCD continues to search for a credentialed pilot and hope the program will continue next year.
