MOSQUITO FOGGING EVENT: BLACKROCK July 21, 2022

 

 

Mosquito control ULV fogging applications are scheduled to be performed in the Blackrock area on Thursday morning July 21, 2022. Crews will be using truck mounted fogging equipment to
control excessive adult mosquitoes.

Fogging operations are planned to start around 4:00 a.m. and be finished by 6:30 a.m. depending on weather. If it is too windy or temperatures are too cold, fogging is not effective and will need to be postponed.

Protect yourself from mosquito bites by wearing long pants and long sleeved shirts when you
are outside, particularly in the morning and evening hours. To prevent bites, the California
Department of Public Health recommends using EPA-registered insect repellents that contain
one of the following active ingredients: DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus
(OLE), or Para-menthane-diol (PMD). Look for one of these ingredients on the front or back of
repellent containers. Products with a higher percentage of an active ingredient will work longer
to protect you. Please read and follow label directions before applying repellents.

Please report any mosquito problems to the Owens Valley Mosquito Abatement Program by
calling (760) 873-7853 or visiting inyomonoagriculture.com.
