Eastvale Control Treatment for Adult Mosquitoes
Eastvale Control Treatment for Adult Mosquitos
Friday, May 11, 2018 from 2:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.
The Northwest Mosquito & Vector Control District will perform adult mosquito spray treatments on Friday, May 11, 2018 to lower the mosquito population affecting recreational and residential areas along the Santa Ana River in the City of Eastvale. The spray application will be conducted between the hours of 2:00 am to 6:00 am at the following locations:
- Riverwalk Park and Bike Trail located next to the Santa Ana River, and
- Eastvale Community Park.
Please see image below for exact spray route
The District will be treating these areas with Aqua-Reslin (EPA Reg. 432-796), which is approved for use in mosquito control by the US EPA. We have been working hard to use Integrated Pest Management Practices in these areas, and the majority of our efforts focus on preventing mosquito breeding and killing mosquito larvae before they become flying adults.
However, due to elevated trap counts, we have decided that adult mosquito control via truck mounted ground fogger is our best means to control the current mosquito populations in these areas. Signs were posted on May 9th, 2017 in the areas that will be sprayed to inform the public of our activities.
Information regarding the treatment will be posted on their website at www.northwestmvcd.org. If there are any questions or concerns please contact the Northwest Mosquito & Vector Control District at 951-340-9792.
