Out in the field with Sam Chester, Bill Hegemann, and Mia Handte-Reinecker
Who we are:
The goal of the LFICD is to improve the quality of life in our towns and to lower public health risks from mosquito-borne disease by controlling mosquito populations. Mosquito control is accomplished primarily through the use of hand and aerial application of environmentally safe mosquito larvicides. We treat only after it has been determined that the number of larvae meet the threshold established by best practices and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture.
How we are funded
The LFICD is supported by grants from the State of Vermont and contributions from the towns of Bridport, Cornwall and Weybridge.
Board of supervisors
The LFICD is managed by a volunteer board of eight supervisors consisting of three members from Bridport (currently Dinah Bain and Judd Markowski); two members from Weybridge (currently Gary Rodes); and three members from Cornwall (currently Christine Chapline, Wendy Lynch, and David Dodge, chair). We are actively seeking new board members; please contact us at email@example.com if you're interested.
The LFICD employs Field Coordinator Craig Zondag and Field Interns.
