New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board

The New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board works to enhance the quality of life in New Orleans by:

  • monitoring and controlling populations of mosquitoes, termites, and rodents
  • reducing rodent and insect-borne disease and destruction

The Board manages all pest populations in the most environmentally safe, efficient and economical manner.  

Integrated Mosquito Control

An integrated mosquito management approach is used by The City of New Orleans Mosquito, Termite and Rodent Control Board (NOMTCB).  This involves vector population surveillance, public education, larval mosquito habitat reduction, and chemical control of larval and adult mosquitoes. Larval source reduction (i.e. the physical elimination of larval breeding sites) involves the inspection and removal of man-made containers (including tires), clutter and trash around residences. For sites that cannot be removed or drained, biorational larvicides are used to target developmental stages. Adult mosquitoes can be treated on a yard, block or residential level using a variety of equipment; backpack or hand-held sprayers, trucks and airplanes.
