A Message from the Director
June 14, 2019
we move into the mosquito season, residents are asked to police their properties
for anything capable of holding water and therefore serving as a mosquito
hatchery. These could include toys, storage totes, buckets, plugged rain
gutters, and tires.
The warming weather will bring with it more mosquitoes and
among them, C. tarsalis, the West Nile Virus mosquito. Though the virus has not
been detected here yet this year, the mosquito is beginning to show up in our
traps, so residents are urged to practice caution such as wearing long sleeves and
using repellents when out after sundown.
We have been aerial spraying with larvicides
along the rivers and soon we will be adulticiding over the towns as well.
Aerial larviciding is carried out during daytime hours and is always over water,
while adulticiding takes place at night, typically beginning at sundown.
