Wide-area mosquito treatment planned for 8-26-22

May contain: map, diagram, and plot

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.
