Our goal is to provide the necessary control of the mosquito population in Joliet Township.


Joliet Township Government implemented a mosquito control program many years ago. The Township, in conjunction with the Village of Rockdale, has a contract with Clarke Environmental Mosquito Control to provide scheduled applications of safe and effective mosquito control for the comfort and health of our residents. With the outbreak and spread of the West Nile Virus and the Zika Virus, we believe it is even more imperative to provide the necessary control of the mosquito population in Joliet Township. 

Key Services

  • Survey and mapping of known mosquito breeding sites and treatment routes.
  • Larval control treatments to prevent mosquito larvae from becoming biting adults.
  • Adult mosquito control treatments to provide immediate relief from biting or disease-carrying adult populations.
