Aerial adult mosquito treatment in agricultural areas of western Placer July 11, 2018 8:30-11:30 PM – TREATMENT CANCELLED

This treatment has been cancelled due to technical issues.

Areas of western unincorporated Placer County are scheduled for treatment. An EPA-registered mosquito adulticide will be applied in an ultra-low volume (ULV) fog by aircraft in an effort to address increased mosquito populations and elevated West Nile virus activity.

Treatment areas (Click on maps for larger image):

  • Agricultural areas between E. Catlett Rd. and Moore Rd. from Farm Rd./Canal Rd. west to the Placer County border.

  • Agricultural areas from Locust Road to 1/4 mile east of Pettigrew Road. Approximate north and south borders are at 1 ½ miles north of Jackson Road to Sunset Blvd.
  • Elverta area – south of Baseline Rd, between Pleasant Grove Rd. and Palliday Rd

Note: Depending on weather conditions, the pilot may have to perform an “offset treatment”.  This means that residents may see the plane flying outside of the designated treatment area in order to compensate for wind speed and direction and to ensure that our public health materials are reaching the intended area scheduled for the treatment.
