Mosquito Abatement

Hello, welcome to the WBR Mosquito Abatement Program website. We hope to accomplish a few things on this site, first of all to give you the public a clear understanding of what we do, and also to provide some educational information on mosquitoes, their habitats, the diseases they carry, eliminating the threat around the home, protecting yourself and your family, and more. If you can not find the answer to your question on this site or if you need more information about a particular subject then please contact us at our office by dialing: 225-214-5900
