Mosquito Abatement  
Mosquito Abatement District-Davis (MAD-D)
The Mosquito Abatement District-Davis is a public agency serving the communities of Davis County. They are responsible for mosquito control and prevention. They act as an information resource on mosquitoes, insect identification, and associated disease transmission.

The Mosquito Abatement District-Davis (MAD-D) started its mosquito control program in 1951 under the direction of the Health Department. Two employees were hired to conduct the spray program. The District equipment consisted of two backpack sprayers and transportation was one horse and a motorcycle. The MAD-D was formed as a special service district in 1953. The MAD-D has grown considerably since its beginning with many changes yet to take place to meet increasing demands in mosquito control.

Most of us see mosquito control as the “fogging truck” that drives through neighborhoods at night spraying for adult mosquitoes. This service is about 25% - 30% of what MAD-D does. The majority of their work takes place on the wetlands spraying for mosquito larvae in the water using hand sprayers, bicycles, ATVs, airplanes, and drones.

Davis Education Foundation
Teen Centers for At-Risk Students 

Davis Education Foundation is the nonprofit fundraising arm of the Davis School District. The Foundation was recently awarded the Best of State Statue Award for the category of Community Development in their efforts in raising awareness of students experiencing homelessness. Most prevalent in their work has been the building of teen resource centers in high schools throughout Davis County.

There are more than 1,200 children classified as homeless in Davis School District. The Davis Education Foundation is removing barriers for these students by providing them with a safe place to shower, do laundry, study, and access resources. The first teen center has been open at Clearfield High for more than a year now. During the school year, 50-60 students stop in each week. Five more centers will open by the start of the new school year at Woods Cross, Layton, Northridge, Mountain High, and the Renaissance Academy. Construction for three additional centers is planned for Syracuse, Bountiful, and Viewmont in the upcoming school year.

The Foundation created a video titled “Give Hope” to help the community become aware of experiences some homeless teens might be going through. The video was based on real stories and experiences of homeless students the Foundation previously worked with.
