Due to the detection of West Nile virus activity and elevated mosquito
abundance, the District will conduct an adult mosquito spray treatment on
August 26th, 2022. West Nile virus is transmitted to humans through an
infected adult mosquito bite. The spray application will be conducted
between the hours of 3:00 am to 6:00 am at the following location: Rancho
Jurupa Park, 4800 Crestmore Rd. Jurupa Valley, CA 92509.
The District will be treating this area with Aqua-Reslin (EPA Reg.
432-796), which is approved for use in mosquito control by the US EPA. We
have been working hard to use Integrated Pest Management Practices in this
area and the majority of our control efforts focus on preventing mosquito
breeding and killing mosquito larvae before they become flying adults.
However, due to West Nile virus activity and elevated mosquito abundance
detected, we have decided that adult mosquito control via truck mounted
ground fogger is our best means to control the current mosquito population
in this area. Signs were posted on August 24th., 2022 in the area affected
by our spray application. Information regarding the treatment will be
posted on our website at www.northwestmvcd.org. If there are any questions
or concerns, please contact the District at 951-340-9792.
