Crystal Lake to Implement Additional Mosquito Control Efforts
Crystal Lake – In conjunction with the City’s ongoing mosquito control program, a City-wide misting application will take place to control the adult mosquito population overnight between Saturday, June 30, 2018, and Sunday, July 1, 2018. If weather conditions do not allow the application to occur, it will take place on the next available evening.
In addition to the targeted misting application, the City's mosquito abatement contractor, Clarke Environmental Mosquito Management, Inc., will continue larviciding efforts in the City.
Clarke will apply a synthetic pyrethroid used widely throughout the Chicagoland area for adult mosquito control.
As part of the City’s existing Mosquito Abatement Program, Clarke regularly examines and treats breeding sites throughout the City, including storm sewer catch basins. The program helps control mosquitoes while they are in the larval stage.
In addition to the abatement program, residents can help control mosquito development by monitoring potential breeding sites in their yards and throughout the City and alerting Clarke to the locations by calling the toll-free Mosquito Hotline at 1-800-942-2555.
Questions regarding the application or any other part of Crystal Lake’s Mosquito Abatement Program can be directed to the Clarke’s Hotline at 1-800-942-2555.
