As part of the District’s Integrated Pest Management program and Mosquito-Borne Disease Management Plan, the District will administer Ultra Low Volume (ULV) treatments by using ground and/or aerial equipment in and around areas where mosquito counts and virus activity have met treatment criteria.
The products applied by the District are designed to quickly reduce adult mosquito populations and to protect public health and welfare. All products are registered and evaluated by the California Environmental Protection Agency.
If an individual wants to take additional action to reduce exposure, the following steps may be taken:
· Remain indoors during applications in your immediate area.
· Consult your doctor if you have special health conditions or concerns.
