Mosquito control ULV fogging applications are planned to be performed south of Lone Pine around the Golf Course tomorrow morning on Friday 6/17/22. Crews will be using truck mounted  fogging equipment to control excessive adult mosquitoes.

Fogging operations are planned to start in the morning between 4:30 and 6:30 am depending on weather. If it is too windy or temperatures are too cold, fogging is not effective and will need to be postponed.

High waters flows from flood irrigation have increased the number of biting mosquitoes in our
communities. 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.
