To help county residents reduce the number of mosquitoes on their property, Rockland County Executive Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert have announced the availability of free mosquito control products:

Mosquito Dunks®: Come to the Health Department, Building D, 50 Sanatorium Road in Pomona, Mondays – Fridays, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. for a free one month’s supply of Mosquito Dunks®. They are available now through October 31, while supplies last.
