Due to West Nile Virus activity (mosquito samples) in the District, Fresno Westside Mosquito Abatement District will be conducting ultra-low volume applications of insecticide via truck in the City of Firebaugh and south of the City of Dos Palos (HWY 33 and Merrill Ave). For questions, please contact the District at 559-659-2437, or e-mail District Manager Conlin Reis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The applications are scheduled to begin immediately after sunset (6:30 pm) but are subject to change depending on environmental conditions.
All products used are approved for public health applications and no special precautions by the public are required. If you wish to avoid direct exposure to the spray, please move inside after sunset or when the spray truck arrives. Residents are encouraged to continue to protect themselves against mosquito bites by avoiding outdoor activity during dawn and dusk and wearing EPA-approved mosquito repellants.
