Mosquito Time: Bring On the Chopper

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

There’s a buzz in the air, which means it’s mosquito season again in Santee.
The San Diego County Vector Control Program will be conducting its first aerial drop of mosquito larvicide for the 2013 mosquito season on Thursday, April 18th  at various sites along the San Diego River. The larvicide used in these aerial drops is specific to mosquito larvae, and will not affect other wildlife or people.

These drops will occur in area wetlands to reduce the mosquito population and the risk of West Nile virus. Mosquitos are monitored and tested for West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases throughout the season.
Cases of West Nile virus peak during warm summer months, and human symptoms include headache, fever, nausea, fatigue, skin rash, or swollen glands. If you believe you have these symptoms, contact your health-care provider.
