Louisiana Mosquito Abatement Plan

A template for a mosquito abatement plan called Louisiana Mosquito Abatement Plan (LAMAP) was developed by a team of AgCenter scientists based on the members' expertise and after analyzing existing plans through a survey of those parishes already involved in organized mosquito abatement programs.  This plan draws on information in the LMCA Training Manual and its Integrated Mosquito Managment policy.  In addition, members of the LMCA and it Technical Advisory Committee, personnel from the Louisiana Office of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) and the Department of Health and Hospitals Office of Public Health (DHH/OPH) have provided input into the development of this template.  It is hoped that parishes will use this planning tool to deveop mosquito control programs designed to meet their specific needs.

The Components of Louisiana Mosquito Abatement Plan are:

  1. Mosquito Sampling and Surveillance
