Fort Stevens State Park management is dedicated to providing the best camping experience for the visitors of the park. While mosquitoes are part of the environment and camping experience, excessive mosquitoes pose threats to the enjoyment and health of visitors.
Currently, the Park outsources mosquito control to a privately licensed vector control company.
The #1 goal is to reduce the mosquito populations while remaining environmentally responsible.
Source reduction and larviciding with a biological material are the main focuses of control.
We rely on the feedback of visitors to know how we can do better. If you have feedback, complaints or suggestions, please let us know.
Fort Stevens State Park does not currently use pesticides to manage adult mosquitoes. Should the need occur, notice will be provided by Park staff and volunteers prior to any adulticide for adult mosquito control.
