Pest Infestation Control - Special Tax District


The Pest Infestation Control Special Tax District is a countywide tax levy that supports the Integrated Pest Management Program. The current tax rate is $0.001 per $100 of assessed real estate value.

The Integrated Pest Management Program includes two separate programs--the Forest Pest Program managed by Stormwater Services, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and the Disease-Carrying Insects Program managed by the Health Department.

The Forest Pest Program currently focuses on preventing the spread of State-approved forest insects and diseases in the County. Currently, there are five insects and two diseases on the list maintained by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services--the gypsy moth, cankerworm, emerald ash borer, hemlock woolly adelgid, Asian longhorned beetle, sudden oak death, and thousand canker disease.
