Indio, CA, February 6, 2017:
The Coachella Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District will conduct larval mosquito treatments by helicopter in the City of Indio where Aedes aegypti, an invasive mosquito species, was detected initially in October. Since then, vector control staff have conducted more than 1,300 door-to-door inspections and resident education, carried out both larval and adult mosquito control at properties where necessary, and 12 nights of truck-mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) applications in affected neighborhoods. Despite these efforts, detections of the invasive mosquito continue in Indio. Applications are scheduled to take place, weather permitting, every week starting February 11, 5:30-7:30 a.m. until March 4, and then every other week on March 18, April 1, and April 15. The aerial route will be within the borders of Monroe St., Indio Blvd., Golf Center Parkway, and I-10, and cover 550 acres and about 1,600 properties. Residents are urged to check the District website for details of the application routes and times at http://www.cvmvcd.org/controlactivities.htm
