The pervasiveness of mosquitoes can serve as a deterrent to youth outdoor activity. In the summer of 2011 the USDA Agricultural Research Service and Rutgers University implemented a community-wide mosquito abatement program in New Jersey. The purpose of this study was to evaluate if the county-administered abatement to reduce the population of Asian tiger mosquitoes will increase the amount of time spent outdoors by children, with an accompanying increase in their amount of physical activity. Weight, height, body mass index, and physical activity levels was collected pre- and post-abatement. Activity levels were measured with accelerometers.
