The West Umatilla Vector Control District supports management of vector populations when and where necessary by means of an integrated program designed to benefit or to have minimal adverse effects on people, domestic animals, wildlife and the environment. This integrated pest management policy recognizes that vector populations cannot always be eliminated, but often must be suppressed to tolerable levels for the well being of humans, domestic animals and wildlife. Selection of scientifically sound suppression methods must be based upon consideration of what is ecologically and economically in the long-term interest of humankind. The following principles are to be followed:
Creative, detail-oriented, always focused.
Curious, tech-geeck and gets serious when it comes to work.
Enthusiastic, passionate with great sense of humor.
