The Arthropod-Borne Disease Laboratory - Our Mission

Our mission is to prevent the spread of arthropod-borne diseases in Suffolk County through surveillance and education efforts. We conduct surveillance (collection and testing) of ticks and mosquitoes to determine the distribution and prevalence of these arthropods and the diseases they spread. We strive to educate our residents about the personal protection measures they can take to prevent tick and mosquito bites.
