Mosquito surveillance conducted this week by the Environmental Health Division (MCEHD) revealed several areas that met the protocol to conduct fogging. The MCEHD uses the CDC’s recommended matrix as a guide of when to fog.
FOGGING: Adult Mosquito control application will begin on Wednesday evening November 2nd, around 6:00 pm, weather permitting. Baron Pest Control was awarded the contract to provide larvicide and fogging services within Mohave County and will be conducting the ground fogging application. Areas to fog include:
· South of Courtwright Rd to Cheyenne Drive and East and West between View Lane and Ranchero Lane
· South of Powell Lake to Pecos Drive and East and West between Cactus Drive/Alturas Road to Golden Shores Parkway
The insecticide being used is Pyronyl Crop Spray. According to the National Pesticide Information Center, this is an insecticide registered for use against mosquitoes made from pyrethrins. Pyrethrins are insecticides that are derived from the extract of chrysanthemum flowers. Types of products that contain pyrethrins include indoor bug bombs, human head-lice treatments, and pet flea sprays.
