Cache Mosquito Abatement District (CMAD)
2016 Season Summary
There were no cases of WNV--human, horse, or bird--confirmed in the district this year. Abatement efforts to kill the larva remain the primary abatement method; larviciding targets the larvae and is more efficient than fogging by killing large numbers of mosquitoes before they mature and can fly to other breeding sites. Fogging is done to control the adult mosquitoes and is subject to weather and wind conditions. The District uses GPS to track the fogging routes and amount of pesticide applied as well as to log information on bodies of water sampled for mosquito larva, the results, and amount of larvicide used.
