About the Georgia Mosquito Control Association

The Georgia Mosquito Control Association is a non-profit, professional organization founded in 1977. The membership consists of local and state government officials, commercial applicators, industry, and research/academic members from the state.

The Association was founded on the belief that mosquito and other public health pest control problems have a significant impact on the citizens of Georgia. There was a need for interested persons within the state to form an association for these purposes:

  • to exchange ideas and procedures to enable mosquito workers to better perform their duties;
  • to protect the health and welfare of the people and their environment;
  • to keep abreast of the latest and best methods for control of mosquitoes and other pests so the citizens will be served;
  • to encourage proper mosquito control, wherever feasible, and to help maintain a positive public interest in areas where mosquito and other public health pest control is operative;
  • to keep the general public better informed of the benefits of mosquito and other public health pest control.

The Association hosts an annual educational and trade conference for its members. These conferences help promote inter-governmental cooperation and serve as a forum for the advancement of responsible mosquito and vector control.

Those interested in membership in the Association should meet the following criteria:

Active Membership - All persons who are engaged in any branch of mosquito and related pest control work, and persons interested in the cause of mosquito and related pest control who desire affiliation with this association, shall be eligible for active membership.

Commercial Membership - Any commercial pest control company professionally engaged in any branch of mosquito and related pest control work and interested in the advancement of mosquito and related pest control knowledge who desire affiliation with this association, shall be eligible for commercial membership.
