Vectors and Pest Control

Vector Control and Preparedness

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is observed each September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for weather-related disasters and emergencies. For example, the flash flooding we’re currently seeing in Tennessee and Hurricane Ida, which recently made landfall in Louisiana has caused flooding and damage across several states. Hurricanes present several public health concerns, including a rapid surge in mosquito populations, which can disrupt recovery efforts and lead to increased risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile.
