Free Mosquito Control Tablets

The Sidney-Shelby County Health Department is giving away free mosquito control larvicide tablets to Shelby County residents. Residents can stop at the Health Department and pickup these tablets to control mosquitoes on their property (limit 5 packs). Mosquitos are known to transmit diseases such as West Nile virus and several forms of encephalitis. Please help us “FIGHT THE BITE” in Shelby County. These tablets are being given out through an OEPA Mosquito Control Grant. Please visit ohio.gov/mosquito or contact our Environmental Division at (937)498-7249 for more information on mosquitoes.
