Mosquito Abatement

Mosquito Abatement

Naperville Township understands and appreciates the concerns residents have about mosquitoes and the illnesses they can carry. That is why we have allocated funds for mosquito abatement services for the unincorporated areas of Naperville Township and have contracted with Clarke Environmental Mosquito Management, Inc to provide these services.

The services provided by Clarke include surveillance, monitoring and treatment. While treatments do not pose a risk to residents, those who are sensitive to odors or chemicals may wish to register with Clarke for advanced notice of spray treatment dates.

Clarke Environmental

The Clarke website provides a host of information related to mosquito control, ways to protect yourself, and how to prevent mosquito broods.

Additionally, Clarke provides a Customer Portal to help deal with mosquito-related issues. Please use it to report nuisance mosquitos, report standing water issues, or to register for nighttime adult mosquitos applications.

Ways to Assist

In conjunction with the Township’s efforts to control mosquitoes, you as a resident can help as well by following this checklist:

  • Get rid of old tires, tin cans, buckets, drums, bottles or any water holding containers
  • Fill in or drain any low places (puddles, ruts in yard)
  • Clean gutters periodically
  • Keep drains, ditches and culverts clean of weeds and trash so water will drain properly
  • Cover trash containers to keep out rain water
  • Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets
  • Empty plastic wading pools at least once a week & store them indoors when not in use
  • Make sure your backyard pool is properly cared for while on vacation
  • Fill in tree rot holes and hollow stumps that hold water with sand or concrete
  • Change the water in bird baths and plant pots or drip trays at least once a week
  • Keep grass cut short and shrubbery well trimmed around the house so adult mosquitoes will not hide there
