Larval Mosquito Treatment In Western Placer County Agricultural Areas June 24-26, 2015

The agricultural areas of western Placer County are scheduled for treatment for larval mosquito populations.  An EPA-registered granular mosquito larvicide will be applied by a low-flying aircraft in an effort to prevent the emergence of adult mosquitoes and reduce the risk of mosquito-transmitted diseases.  Treatments will occur during the daylight hours, most commonly in the morning and early afternoon.

Treatment area:

western Placer county –  Treatment areas will include only organic rice fields, with the granular larvicide material applied directly to the fields (Click on map to enlarge).
