The Cape May County Department of Mosquito Control will be visiting local towns to provide more information to resident and visitors about the growing concerns that new species of bugs to the county will bring and what people can do to protect themselves.

The talks will be given at branches of the Cape May County Library system. The next one will be held on May 31 in Lower Township at 10 a.m. Future dates will be held on June 5th in Wildwood Crest at 10 a.m., June 22nd in Sea Isle City at 10 a.m., July 1st in Stone Harbor at 10 a.m., and July 22nd in Upper Township at 5:30 p.m.

“I wanted our department to get out in the community to better explain how people can make small changes to keep their property safer,” Freeholder Jeffrey Pierson, liaison to Department of Mosquito Control said. “We want County government to be as accessible as possible for everyone in Cape May County.”

The Cape May County Department of Mosquito Control’s objective is to manage mosquito populations using an integrated control approach, stressing environmental safety, economics, efficacy, research and surveillance in order to protect the health and welfare of the citizens and visitors of Cape May County.
