Public Education Program
Keeping Residents Informed
Complementing our other services, the Public Education Program works to inform residents about the life cycle of mosquitoes and bees, protection from mosquito and tick-borne diseases, safety around bee hives and swarms, property owner responsibilities, and the functions of the District.
This is accomplished through the use of informational brochures, fact sheets, city newsletters, public speaking engagements, informational booths at local events, public service announcements, and our District website.
Thousands of pamphlets and videos have been distributed regarding public health issues caused by mosquitoes, Africanized honeybees, ticks and other vectors.
The Public Education Department has also implemented an educational program for public elementary schools.
Students are given the opportunity to learn hands on about mosquitoes, bees, and ticks through the use of live and preserved insect displays, videos, and insect related handouts.
