The Caddo Parish Mosquito Control Section sprays neighborhoods on a periodic basis and following requests made by Caddo Parish citizens. Upon receiving a request for spray from a citizen a Caddo Parish Mosquito Control officer will inspect the neighborhood and surrounding area for potential breeding and harboring sites. After inspection, the Mosquito Control Officer will decide what areas need spraying and coordinate the spray.

Caddo Parish Mosquito Control continuously monitors the mosquito population in Caddo Parish by setting light traps to determine the areas that need treating. This method helps Caddo Parish Mosquito Control officers determine both the population and species of the mosquito. With this information, an officer scouts for the breeding sites. Once the breeding sites are found, the Caddo Parish Mosquito Control Officers will larvicide and adulticide the area.

 Larviciding consists of treating breeding sites which contain mosquito larvae. If mosquito larvae are found, the Caddo Parish Mosquito Control officers will treat it with a biological control agent (BTI granules) that is environmentally safe for humans, animals and other organisms.

To request BTI granules or rat poison at no charge for citizens, contact Animal Services and Mosquito Control at 318-226-6624.
