Santee to Receive Mosquito Abatement Treatment

Thursday, April 16, 2015

On Wednesday, April 22, a County Vector Control  helicopter will be hovering over ponds in the San Diego River to deposit tiny pellets that prevent mosquito larvae from growing into biting adults. 

This will be the first  of several aerial pesticide applications during the mosquito-breeding season, which runs from April to October. The pesticide consists of corn cob or sand granules coated with three types of bacteria that specifically target mosquito larvae.

The mosquito reduction effort is aimed at preventing West Nile virus.  More information is available at www.sdcounty.ca.gov/deh/aerials
