The numbers are monitored to help us make control decisions
which is used in our biological control program to control Mosquito Larvae. They eat hundreds of larvae every day.
This is a piece of equipment used for our source reduction, or water management projects. It is a Kobelco SR70 low ground pressure hydraulic excavator, leased to us by the NJ State Mosquito Commission. We use it to clean and excavate ditches and to clean streams silted in with debris
