Mosquito Program


Mosquitoes can be found around many households, campgrounds, and parks in Ohio. It is common for humans to come in contact with mosquitoes in the spring, summer, and early fall in Ohio when going outdoors. There are 59 species of mosquitoes in Ohio. Some of these mosquitoes are known to spread disease. Although rare, mosquitoes can spread diseases such as West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, and Malaria if an infected mosquito bites a human. Dogs can also get heartworms from bites from infected mosquitoes.

The Scioto County Health Department is in partnership with The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Zoonotic Disease Program to conduct county wide vector borne disease surveillance to help with mosquito control activities. Environmental Health Division staff are available to help assist you with questions regarding mosquito prevention, filing complaints regarding mosquito problems in Scioto County, and reducing mosquito harborage conditions in Scioto County. To file complaints or report mosquito problems, please call (740)355-8358.
