[ARCHIVED] Des Plaines Valley Mosquito Abatement District - Mosquito Mitigation Efforts

Mosquito

The production of mosquitoes involved in the transmission of West Nile Virus (WNV) is on the increase with the return of warm temperatures coupled with drier conditions. The first WNV positive mosquito sample in our area was found in mid-June. The Desplaines Valley Mosquito Abatement District monitoring of adult mosquito populations for WNV has found additional positive samples. While the risk of WNV transmission is still low at this time, amplification of WNV within the adult mosquito population is on the increase as noted in the attached press release

Many things can be done by residents to minimize mosquito activity and WNV transmission, such as eliminating sources of standing water on property (unrimmed tires, trash cans, buckets), limiting outdoor activity at dusk and wearing long sleeves/pants and loose fitting light colored clothing.  Please visit the Desplaines Valley Mosquito Abatement District website here or the Village website here for more information.
