The District will perform adult mosquito spray treatments on March 31st.,
2022 to lower the mosquito population affecting recreational and residential
areas within the City of Corona. The spray application will be conducted
between the hours of 3:00 am to 6:00 am at the following locations: Corona
Airport, Butterfield Park, open space area along railroad tracks near Auto
Center Dr., and vegetated areas on the south side of the Prado Basin. Please
see attached images for the exact spray route.
The District will be treating these areas 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 these
areas and the majority of our efforts focus on preventing mosquito breeding
and killing mosquito larvae before they become flying adults; However, due
to elevate adult mosquito abundance, we have decided that adult mosquito
control via truck mounted ground fogger is our best means to control the
current mosquito populations in these areas. Signs were posted on March
29th., 2022 in the areas 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.
