The following is a summary of vector control activities for April 1018;
Throughout March and April, VDCI has worked to control the larval mosquito populations for Payette County. Approximately 45 acres was larvicided for the month of April. Higher temperatures in May and June will increase the mosquito populations and therefore, increase service requests and larval applications. VDCI will remain diligent in our surveillance and control activities in an attempt to minimize further increases in the adult mosquito populations.
Due to colder weather in the evenings, VDCI did not implement its mosquito adult practices via truck ULV operations for the months of March and April. Adulticide applications are anticipated to start near the beginning of May.
As expected, mosquito populations are increasing with the warmer weather. These numbers are expected to rise going into May. No pools of mosquitoes were tested for West Nile Virus during this report period. VDCI will implement trapping in areas experiencing increased numbers of Culex mosquitoes, and test Culex mosquitoes for WNV. As always, VDCI welcomes residents with any mosquito-related questions or concerns to contact VDCI’s Payette office directly at 208-642-6835.
