The following is a summary of vector control activities for June thru July - August 2018;
As expected with the hot weather we did see an increase in mosquito activity. During the month we received 126 requests for service most were for barrier protection during family events, and most request were from the areas in Payette and N. Fruitland. Our vector control activities for the month had 46 truck nights spraying 1154 square miles or 41965 acres.
This control season we have had 3 different area tested positive for West Nile the first was Whitley Bottoms reported last month. Two new areas this month were Fruitland City and New Plymouth City. As always, we immediately sprayed all areas near the trap sites and continued monitoring the area. There has been no new positive test in these surveillance areas. With cooler weather we should see an overall reduction in mosquito activity, however we are continuing to set trap sites, fog and larvicide to control their activities.
