The function of the SCMAD is to control all mosquitoes which may bring disease or harassment to humans and domestic animals. This is accomplished by using the most effective and economical measures that result in the least possible damage to nontarget organisms or to other elements of the environment. A variety of preventive correctional management, naturalistic, physical, and chemical control measures are utilized selectively, singly, or in combination. Preventive measures are emphasized, principally naturalistic and physical control, but chemical control is integrated with other measures as necessary.
