Mosquito control by the county?

Hello, My family owns a small (8 acre) farm in King William County, very close to the border with Hanover. The insects, and especially mosquitoes, are always bad but this summer they have reached a level that is truly intolerable. I have tried every product available (sprays, traps, foggers, and the anti-larvae stuff you put in the water, as well as a professional exterminator) but all of it barely made a dent. This is not surprising, given that we are virtually surrounded by swampland. I know that in some areas (especially near the coast), the county engages in mosquito control measures, such as spraying swampy areas from the air. I wanted to inquire if this is at all possible in King William, as I am sure I'm not the only one with this problem. Mosquitoes are not just a nuisance but a public health threat, and also spread livestock diseases. Our animals refuse to leave the barn after 4pm and have lost a lot of weight this summer despite our pastures being extremely lush. I can't blame them, as the moment they step outside they are covered in mosquitoes (as am I if I don't coat myself in Deet every 30 minutes!). Fly sprays that used to work in the past don't seem to repel the mosquitoes anymore, and I simply don't know what else to try. Is there anything the county can do? Thank you for your time.
