Mosquito Control

The City of Omak has implemented a mosquito control program.  We have a crew member who is a certified Public Health Applicator.  The City of Omak will start applying larvicide in mid April followed by the application of adulticides.  This process will begin in the south end of town where the mosquito population is high.  Our mission is to kill the mosquitoes in the first stages of life.  The pesticide application will continue through October.
