Mosquito Control

Mosquito Control Program


The Maryland Department of Agriculture, through the Mosquito Control Program, performs all mosquito control activities in the state. The City participates in the Mosquito Control Program, which begins in late May/early June and continues through September. State mosquito control staff conduct adult mosquito surveillance and, if certain state-mandated thresholds are met, conduct spraying operations. A spraying day has not yet been confirmed for the upcoming 2021 season.

Reporting a Problem Area

In order to prevent and monitor mosquito borne diseases, residents are still encouraged to report problem areas by using this form. Please try to complete as much of the form as possible.

Note - spraying is not effective against the Asian Tiger Mosquito (black with white legs and white stripe), which are prevalent in the City of Hyattsville. Community cleanups do control the pest when residents empty and/or rinse any containers where water can collect on a weekly basis, including tires, wading pools, wheelbarrows, canoes, tarps, flower pots, saucers, birdbaths, and gutters.
