SEASONAL EMPLOYEES:

Four Seasonal Employees, college students who usually are pursuing biology or environmental science related degree, assist with the inspection and control of mosquito breeding in each of the four districts designated by the Commission in Warren County.

A fifth college student fills another seasonal position of Surveillance Assistant and assists with our routine disease trapping and mosquito population surveillance as well as participating in a field study, depending on the demands of the current season.  Starting in 2011, under an agreement with the State Mosquito Control Commission, an additional seasonal employee serves as the primary courier to pick up mosquitoes samples from 11 counties in North Jersey and deliver them to the Public Health, Agricultural and Environmental Lab in Mercer County for virus testing.
