Aerial Adult Mosquito Treatment in West Park and West Placer Tonight



Aerial Adult Mosquito Treatment Tonight
What: Adult mosquito treatment
Where: West Park and West Placer County
When:  Thursday, August 24 between 8:00 p.m. and 12 a.m.
West Nile virus positive mosquitoes and birds + high adult mosquito counts
Parts of West Park and west Placer County are scheduled for an aerial adulticide treatment tonight due to positive West Nile virus mosquitoes and dead birds and high adult mosquito counts. An EPA-registered mosquito adulticide will be applied in an ultra-low volume fog by aircraft to target adult mosquitoes.

Adult mosquito control treatments are made to prevent West Nile virus transmission to people. A number of factors including the aircraft, weather conditions, and adult mosquito and disease surveillance information must be considered for a safe and effective application. 

Wind speed and direction are especially important during adult mosquito applications. The District only uses aerial mosquito control contractors who use specialized systems to allow the pilot to measure the wind and fly in a way to deliver the material into the target area. This means that sometimes the aircraft will need to fly upwind of the target area to compensate for the wind.
