Tips to Rid Neeld Estate of Mosquito Breeding Sites

  • Clean rain gutters to allow water to flow freely.

  • Remove old tires or drill drainage holes in tires used for playground equipment.

  • Store plastic wading pools inside or turn them upside down when not in use.

  • Turn over or remove clay pots and plastic containers.

  • Dispose of all empty beverage containers, plastic wrappers, discarded toys, etc.

  • Check for trapped water in plastic or canvas tarps used to cover boats, pools, etc.  Arrange the tarp to drain the water.

  • Pump out bilges in boats. Turn canoes and small boats upside down for storage.

  • Replace water in bird baths at least twice a week.

  • Remove pet food and water dishes that are not being used.

  • Flush livestock water troughs twice a week.

  • Don't leave garbage can lids lying upside down. Be sure water does not collect in the bottom of garbage cans.

  • Flush water in the bottom of plant holders twice a week.

  • Fix dripping outside water faucets.

  • Turn wheelbarrows upside down when stored outside.

  • Check around construction sites or do-it-yourself improvements to ensure that proper backfilling and grading prevent drainage problems.

  • Check ornamental ponds, tree holes and water-holding low areas for mosquito larvae. 
    Call the nearest Mosquito Control Office (see below) if you find, or suspect, mosquito larvae are present. “Mosquito Fish” are available that will naturally control larva in ponds.

  • If ditches do not flow and contain stagnant water for one week or longer, they can produce large numbers of mosquitoes. Report such conditions to a Mosquito Control Office.
    Do not attempt to clear these ditches because they may be protected by wetland regulations.

Contact the Mosquito Control at the County’s Department of General Services, 410-535-1600 or 301-855-1243 or  Mosquito Control Section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture nearest you for additional assistance and advice.

 Calvert County will be starting their abatement of nuisance and vector (disease carrier) mosquitoes on May 1st.  This includes biological control methods for larvae at breeding sites, and also spraying for adult mosquitoes, on an as needed basis only.  This is determined by specimen count using mosquito lamp traps within the community.  The spraying is     done in accordance with EPA regulations and uses permethrin which is not suppose to be harmful to humans or to pets, but cannot be sprayed near ponds with fish or near beehives. The spraying generally will be once or twice a week when the mosquitoes are bad. 

PLEASE PROVIDE A REASON ( EXAMPLE: health issues, pond with fish, beehive, etc.)

Attention Dog Walkers:

Help keep our pets from polluting the Bay.  Pet Waste

is one of the major contributors to Bay pollution.  The "Mutt Mitt" Doggie Bag Dispensers have been installed, one at each of the main entrances to the beach. Hopefully this will encourage all dog walkers to pick up after their pets.

At our December 2019 NECA Business Meeting a motion was put on the floor to have our meetings every other month instead of monthly.  This motion did not go through because per our By-Laws, this can only be determined/changed by the Executive Committee. That being said, I sent out an email to them (Executive Committee) and everyone agreed to have them every other month.  Below is a list of the months we will be having our meetings in 2020.  They will continue to be on the first Thursday of these months starting at 6:30 pm.

Calvert County Critical Area Program

What You Need To Know:
LL of Neeld Estate is in the Critical Area. . .   Every Property

A map, outlining the Critical Areas of Calvert County is posted in the Planning & Zoning Office in
Prince Frederick.

The Critical Area for Neeld Estate extends all the way to Tobacco Road. (Our community is surrounded by water)
This land is 'critical' because the health of the Bay, including the plant and animal life living in it is
impacted by what you do on your property.  


What Activities Are Regulated in the Buffer?
* No cutting or clearing is allowed without a permit.
* No structure or building is allowed without a permit.
* Grading,
adding fill material, or shore erosion control methods require permits.*
* Dead trees may be removed without a permit.
* Trees posing immediate threat to a structure may be removed without a permit, but with prior Planning
   & Zoning approval.
* The lower one-third of branches on mature trees may be pruned without a permit, but with prior Planning and 
  Zoning approval.

* Invasive vines may be removed without a permit, but with prior Planning & Zoning approval.
* Maintenance of existing lawns is permitted.
* Stiff penalties are imposed for unauthorized clearing in the buffer zone.

1. What is the Critical Area?
In 1984, the Maryland General Assembly resolved to reverse the deterioration of the Bay*s environment by enacting the Chesapeake Bay Protection Act. In 2002, the Act was amended to include the Atlantic Coastal Bays. The Act required the 16 counties, Baltimore City, and 44 municipalities surrounding the Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays to implement a land use and resource management program designed to mitigate the damaging impact of water pollution and loss of natural habitat, while also accommodating the jurisdiction*s future growth. The Critical Area Act recognizes that the land immediately surrounding the Bays and their tributaries has the greatest potential to affect water quality and wildlife
habitat and thus designated all lands within 1,000 feet of tidal waters or adjacent tidal wetlands as the *Critical Area.

2. Who and What does the Critical Area Act affect?
The Act affects all those who live or own property within 1,000 feet of tidal waters or tidal wetlands.
All development or use of land located within the Critical Area is affected in some way. Just because land is in the Critical Area however, does not mean it can*t be developed and used.

3. What is the Critical Area Commission and how does it affect me?
The 29-member Critical Area Commission was created by the 1984 Chesapeake Bay Protection Act to design the Critical Area Criteria which are the basis of 63 local Critical Area Programs. The Commission reviews and approves local jurisdiction Critical Area Programs and amendments to those programs. *The Commission staff reviews and comments on subdivisions, site plans, variances and other local development proposals within the Critical Area. While a State agency, the Critical Area Commission reviews and comments on development proposals within the Critical Area. Each local jurisdiction maintains sovereignty in creating, adopting, and implementing its local program in accordance with the Commission*s Criteria.
