Auburn 2018: updated 7/9/18 11:27am
Mosquitoes with West Nile Virus were confirmed July 5 in a surveillance trap set June 29 by CMMCP in the northwest part of town. Working with the Auburn Board of Health, truck-mounted Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) spraying is scheduled in the area below on July 10 after sunset.
Catch basins were treated in this area in this area to stop emergence of mosquito species that can carry WNV, and additional surveillance traps have been set up to gauge population density and determine if additional virus can be isolated.
It’s important to note that spraying can only reduce but not eliminate the threat of mosquitoborne illness in the areas that are sprayed. That’s why it’s important for individuals to continue to take personal precautions against mosquito bites — both before and after any spraying is conducted.
NOTE: ADDITIONAL AREAS NOT LISTED ABOVE MAY BE SCHEDULED – CHECK HERE AFTER 3PM ON JULY 10: https://www.cmmcp.org/home/pages/tentative-spray-areas
