2020 Season Review + Invasive Mosquito Update

District News.jpg

 

2020 Mosquito Season By the Numbers

a770958d-df2d-4749-820c-a9f531de85a6.jpg
We had a busy 2020 mosquito season but a mild West Nile virus season. The season ended with 58 positive mosquito samples, two positive dead birds and two human cases of West Nile virus in Placer County. This year, we did not detect any invasive Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in Placer County although we searched long and hard to find them and while nearby counties had initial and secondary detections. We conducted over 50 adulticide treatments to help limit West Nile virus transmission with aerial and ground-based operations and we inspected close to 12,000 stormwater catch basins. We also conducted 92 special property inspections as part of the Good Neighbor project where we looked for potential Aedes aegypti sources in targeted neighborhoods most susceptible to Aedes sources on top of our normal public service requests.
 
We hired four seasonal staff members who worked hard with our full-time staff in the heat of the summer and through a global pandemic to help keep Placer County safe.
 
As the peak mosquito season continues to wind down and mosquitoes start to overwinter, we refocus our District’s efforts to planning for the next year, evaluating our efficiency and effectiveness in protecting the public from West Nile virus, we revisit research projects and focus on different mosquito species and ticks in the foothills.

Invasive Aedes Not Detected This Summer

As of today, we still have not detected any Invasive Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in Placer County. Surrounding counties encountered their first detections as well secondary detections this season. We continue to conduct enhanced surveillance in the detection area from 2019 and will update the public if there are any detections as we move into cooler weather.
