Residents of Cumberland County
The Cumberland County Department of Public Health is aware of the heightened concerns associated with the Zika virus and has created an information hotline number (910.433.3824)to give up-to-date information on the status of Cumberland County and the Zika virus.
Take the time to educate yourself about the symptoms and affects of the Zika Virus. The county is providing free 4 month supplies of Mosquito Dunks to help in the reduction of the mosquito population.The dunks should be placed in standing water (water you cannot get rid of) by breaking the life cycle and preventing the eggs from maturing into biting adult mosquitoes. Getting a thorough Mosquito Squad Barrier treatment can reduce your mosquito population by 85-90 %. Always remember to rid your property of standing water.
