The Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District’s primary goal is to protect public health and welfare bymanaging mosquito populations so they do not present a significant risk to our community. In the eventthat mosquito populations exceed threshold levels and cause significant discomfort or injury or when emergency control measures are needed to rapidly disrupt or terminate the transmission of disease tohumans, the District will respond by implementing the guidelines in the State of California’s Mosquito and Mosquito-borne Disease Management Plan.
As part of this plan, the District may administer Ultra Low Volume (ULV) treatments by using backpack foggers, hand sprayers, truck-mounted foggers or aircraft, in and around areas where virus activity has been detected. Each fogging unit’s output is calibrated to ensure the correct amount of product is applied for each treatment area. All products are registered with the California Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and are applied by trained and state-certified technicians.
