Louisiana Mosquito Control Association
The LMCA was founded in 1957 with the original goal of demonstrating, through experimental pilot programs, that marsh mosquitoes could be effectively controlled and to push for legislation enabling individual parishes the ability to form taxing districts for the express purpose of funding their own mosquito control program. After successfully achieving both goals, the association is now 52 years old, with funded parish-wide mosquito control programs in 24 parishes and over 350 members.
