Northwest Mosquito & Vector Control District
Due to the detection of West Nile virus activity, the Northwest Mosquito & Vector Control District will perform adult mosquito spray treatments on September 20th, 2019. 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 5:00 am at the following locations; the residential neighborhood located in The City of Eastvale between Sumner Ave and Harrison Ave, and the north end of Limonite Ave.
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. The District has been working hard to use Integrated Pest Management Practices in these areas and the majority of their efforts focuses on preventing mosquito breeding and killing mosquito larvae before they become flying adults. However, due to West Nile virus activity detected, they have decided that adult mosquito control via truck mounted ground fogger is the best means to control the current mosquito population in this area. The District posted signs today in the areas that will be sprayed to inform the public of these activities. Information regarding the treatment will be posted online at www.northwestmvcd.org. The District is currently having problems with their email system so please call 951-340-9792 if you have any questions or concerns.
