A. Campgrounds shall be kept free from cans, jars, buckets, old tires, and other articles that may hold water and provide temporary breeding places for mosquitoes. Mosquito control measures and supplemental larvicidal measures shall be undertaken by the permit holder when the need is indicated.

B. Fly and rodent breeding shall be controlled by eliminating breeding places. The area surrounding the garbage cans shall not be permitted to become littered with garbage nor saturated with waste liquid from garbage. Infestations of rodents or flies, ticks, mosquitos, or other insects of public health concern shall be evidence that sufficient vector control measures have not been implemented and shall be considered a violation of these regulations.

C. The growth of weeds, grass, poison ivy, or other noxious plants shall be controlled as a safety measure and as a means toward the elimination of ticks and chiggers. Pesticidal measures shall be applied, if necessary, provided the pesticide and its use is in accordance with the rules promulgated by the Board of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
