Mosquito Dunks

For Use on Private Property:
Dunks are provided to residents by FMCA at monthly meetings June-September or by calling Nancy Youmans at (410) 867-4962.

Dunks-in-the-Ditches Program:
Dunks are available as part of a Dunks-in-the-Ditches Program. This program consist of an organized group of volunteers. Each resident that volunteers for this program is assigned a block or street to monitor and apply mosquito dunks in ditches with standing water as needed. The dunks last a month, and the volunteers will get a fresh supply of dunks every month for placement. These dunks are to be used exclusively for roadbed ditches. To volunteer or to learn more please contact maapfel@verizon.net
