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, they will conduct spraying operations on Monday evenings the for 2021 season. Residents should stay indoors, closer their windows, and bring in pets when that occurs.
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.

You may request an exemption from adult mosquito control services on a yearly basis by completing this application.
