[ARCHIVED] Positive WNV Mosquito Sample - Mosquito Ground Spraying, August 1st, 3rd, and 4th.

The total number of mosquitoes in Quadrant A (north west portion of Highland Park) has reached the treatable threshold as established by the Town’s Mosquito Control Policy; therefore, the Parks Department will conduct ground spraying measures to reduce the density of adult mosquito populations. The Town’s decision to use adulticide is based on the Centers for Disease Control’s recommendations that surveillance data, when combined with established thresholds, indicates a necessity to reduce the density of adult mosquito populations quickly to lower the risk of WNV.

Below is a listing of mosquito ground spraying dates, times, and locations (Quadrant Map attached):

• Friday, August 1st: 10:00 PM-5:00 AM: Truck mounted ground spraying in Quadrant A,C,D only

• Sunday, August 3rd: 10:00 PM-5:00 AM: Truck mounted ground spraying in Quadrant A,C,D only

• Monday, August 4th: 10:00 PM-5:00 AM: Truck mounted ground spraying in Quadrant A,C,D only

Additional information about the Town's Mosquito Control policy may be found on the Town's website.
