Adult Mosquito Control Treatment: Newland Marsh and Little Shell on 6/19 and 6/21
posted on 06/19/2018.

Based on Mosquito trapping count collected during the week of June 17, disease week 25, Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District (OCMVCD) staff has continued to identify high adult mosquito counts at Newland Marsh and Little Shell. 

The District’s current treatment criteria states that adult mosquito control is continued when 50 or more female mosquitoes are identified in mosquito trap per trap night. The city of Huntington Beach has been identified one of nine cities with the highest risk for mosquito-borne disease; adult mosquito control can assist in reducing the risk of future mosquito-borne disease in the area. 

A total of 550 female mosquitoes were collected at Little Shell and 160 female mosquitoes at Newland Marsh, therefore continued adult mosquito control is needed to suppress the population. 

OCMVCD is scheduled to conduct backpack treatments for adult mosquito control on Tuesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 21 from 8 pm to 9:30 pm at these locations. The District will be using Aqua Duet for the treatment.

Information will also be posted on our social media pages and a notice will be sent to Huntington Beach residents subscribed to OCMVCD email alerts.
