The following is a summary of vector control activities for May & June 2018;
Do to cooler weather and winds VDCI concentrated most their control activities to Larval control and fogged when the winds subsided. During this time VDCI did respond to 51 residence service request most were for barrier treatment, several requesting their property added to the spray list and requests for property inspection to help eliminate breeding habitat on their property.
On June 27 during our normal surveillance mosquitoes from the Jewel Wetlands N. of Payette tested positive for West Nile. Control measures and surveillance for adult mosquitoes was immediately implemented. All areas of concern will be monitored and tested for the Culex Tarsalis this is the mosquito that carries West Nile. With the warmer weather we anticipate that mosquito hatch and activity will continue to escalate.
We encourage all residence to take appropriate actions to avoid mosquitos by protecting yourself and home. You can call VDCI at 208-642-6835 for mosquito related questions or visit www.westnile.idaho.gov
