About Us

Who We Are:

The BLSG Insect Control District is a municipal district started in 1979 whose mission is to reduce levels of mosquitoes for better quality of life and improved health of our citizens. It is funded partly by the state and partly by the four towns that make up the district (Brandon, Leicester, Salisbury, and Goshen).  Our main goal is to minimize mosquito impacts on our citizens with as little environmental impact as possible.

The District is run by a volunteer Board of Trustees, with two representatives from each town. Presently serving on the Board are Kip Andres (Salisbury), Peter Hare (Salisbury) Dave Bishop (Goshen),  Ben Lawton (Goshen), Brad Lawes (Leicester), Gary Gibbs (Leicester), Steven O. Kellogg (Brandon) Wayne Rausenberger (Brandon). A Brandon and a Salisbury position are presently open. Ben Lawton serves as Chair, Wayne Rausenberger is Treasurer, and Kip Andres is Secretary. Mort Pierpont is the Adulticide Coordinator. Will Mathis is the Larvicide/CDC Light Trap Coordinator.
