Each week , the Lehigh Conservation District County Vector Control Program Staff places 25-30 traps at established sites throughout the County. The traps are species specific and are deployed to determine mosquito type and abundance in a given locale.
All traps are placed in a vegetated area out of public view. They run for a 12–16-hour period and are picked up each day.
Occasionally people find a trap and fear it is something nefarious. If you happen to see one of these traps, rest assured it is only the LCCD Vector Program taking care of business.
And remember, the best way to eliminate mosquitoes, is to eliminate standing water.
