James “Jim” Torbert
Pest Control Coordinator
Mutually, Mir and Jim work on different pest related projects and programs such as grasshoppers, Mormon crickets and mosquito abatement, to help Elmore County ranchers, farmers and citizens. Jim regularly surveys known standing water sites to monitor for mosquito larvae. These areas are treated to control mosquito larvae. He sets traps to test mosquitoes for WNV. In the early evening, he is fogging areas that experience high mosquito populations during the season. To report areas of standing water or high mosquito populations in Elmore County you can call Jim directly at 208-587-2304 or visit the Elmore county website at www.elmorecounty.org/pest to email us directly.
