Larvicide (abatement to control mosquito larva) is done in areas where mosquito larva are found: standing water in fields or ditches, ruts, etc. Please check around your home and dump out water that has pooled in old tires, pails or lids, and other items.
Workers check for mosquito larva in standing water and treat when needed to kill the larva or prevent them from maturing to adults. Traps for adult mosquito surveillance are set up throughout the District and are checked weekly. The trapped mosquitoes are counted, separated into species, and Culex mosquitoes are sent to the lab for WNV testing.
Fogging to control adult mosquitoes is done in the evenings, Monday through Thursday; see the schedule below.
