Mosquito Management

Mosquito monitoring and control occurs annually on the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge as a coordinated effort between Refuge staff and San Diego County Vector Control.

This activity was first evaluated and found compatible on the San Diego Bay NWR in 2006. The use was addressed in a Compatibility Determination (CD) and reviewed in conjunction with the San Diego Bay NWR Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). In accordance with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Policy (603 FW 2.11H), which requires the reevaluation of such uses every ten years, we have prepared an updated Compatibility Determination for Mosquito Management on this Refuge. This use and its compatibility with Refuge purposes is described in a draft CD, which is now available for review.
