Function

The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District was formed December 8, 1927 to serve thirteen municipalities in an eighty square mile area bounded by Devon Avenue on the south, the Lake County line on the north, Pfingsten Road on the west, and lake Michigan on the east. The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District works to reduce and control the regional mosquito population. The NSMAD operations seek to reduce the probability of mosquito borne disease (e.g., West Nile virus) and to minimize annoyance from nuisance mosquitoes.
