Mission Statement
The Suffolk County Mosquito Commission (the Commission) represents the interests of Boston, Chelsea, and their residents in providing guidance and oversight to the Suffolk County Mosquito Control Project (the Project). The Commission strives to ensure that the member communities receive services that are consistent with applicable law and justified by the tenets of public health, vector control, environmental safety and fiscal responsibility. Integrated mosquito management services provided by the Project and approved by the Commission will be based on the State's Generic Environmental Impact Report on Mosquito Control in Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Arbovirus Surveillance and Response Plan and the policies of the State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board.  The Project's integrated mosquito management plan will consist of mosquito surveillance, larval mosquito control of wetlands and catch basins, adult mosquito control, wetlands management/ ditch maintenance and public education.
