Although mosquitoes will never be eradicated, Acadia Parish, being such a large rice and crawfish producing parish, will benefit greatly from this mosquito control program.  Regular spray hours are from sunset until the assigned area is completed.  We encourage requests (from people that are in the mosquito control tax district) for special functions to be called in advanced notice.  Private roads and drives that are in excess of 300 feet can be requested to have a reflective marker placed at the site and have the trucks go down it when they are in that area.  The trucks spray every public road and the private roads that are requested by the homeowner, not just where the houses are.  Every request is acted upon in a timely fashion and are carried out by the rules and regulations set up by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry.  The full-time staff includes two 8D and three 8A certified individuals.  Our main goal is to reduce the population of mosquitoes in order to reduce the possibility of disease transmission. 

Where there is water, there are mosquitoes -- so everyone can help by:

  • Eliminating standing water around your home

  • Staying indoors as much as possible between dusk and dawn

  • Wearing insect repellant and long sleeves and long pants when you must be outside

  • Repairing screen doors and windows

  • Keeping your grass cut short


Call the Mosquito Control Office after 3:30 p.m. daily
for spraying locations during spraying season.
