Importance: High

Good Morning;

The NCMCD is planning on conducting an aerial larvicide application this Thursday (6/13/13)  to control mosquito larvae hatched from the heavy flooding rains of last Friday night.  We are still in the planning stages, so it is not clear where the exact locations to be targeted are yet, but we will post maps of our proposed sites by Wednesday.  This application is a one day application and will take place over the larger river floodplains.  Since the application will take place over the floodplains, it will be much less noticeable to the public than our spring aerial larvicide that we conduct in April.  Please note that this is not a ‘spray’ to control adult mosquitoes, but is a granular application of a biological larvicide, applied to the wetlands, which is toxic only to mosquito and black fly larvae.


If you have any questions or concerns; please contact the office.
