Cache Mosquito Abatement District (CMAD)

2018 MOSQUITO SEASON

Abatement activities began in early May. Larvicide (chemicals that target only mosquito larva) is being applied to areas of standing water when mosquito larva are found. Fogging to control adult mosquitoes began June 11th. Please call (435) 764-6839 to report mosquito problems.

We use GIS (Geographic Information System) to track where we find mosquito larva, what compound we use to treat the standing water, and to record the results when we check back (larval growth stopped, larva dead, etc.). All of our foggers are equipped with a GPS chip to not only track our route but to also gather information on the application rate, speed of the vehicle, and to stop fogging when we reach those properties that have requested no spraying (fogging). The foggers are calibrated to deliver a consistent droplet size at various travel speeds up to 20 mph. All of our workers are licensed by UDAF (Utah Department of Agriculture and Food) to apply pesticides.

WNV found in CMAD Mosquitoes

Mosquito pools from Hyrum and Benson (trapped on August 7th) tested positive for West Nile Virus. WNV was also confirmed in numerous areas throughout the state (Box Elder, Davis, Magna, Salt Lake area, Tooele, and Weber). This is the peak period for WNV so please wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and use an approved insect repellant when outdoors between dusk and dawn when the Culex mosquitoes are active. Fight the Bite!

The first human case in Utah for this season was confirmed August 16th in Utah county. The Utah Department of Health Bureau of Epidemiology provides information on WNV for the general public, media, medical personnel, and others. Click here for a fact sheet on WNV in Utah.
