Crystal Lake to Implement Additional Mosquito Control Efforts


Crystal Lake – As part of the City’s ongoing mosquito control program, a City-wide misting application will take place overnight between Wednesday, August 29, 2018, and Thursday, August 30, 2018. The misting is in response to an increase in mosquitoes testing positive for the West Nile Virus. If weather conditions do not allow the application to occur on Wednesday night, it will take place on the next available evening.


Clarke Environmental, under contract to the City, will apply a synthetic pyrethroid used widely throughout the Chicagoland area for adult mosquito control. Clarke regularly examines and treats breeding sites throughout the City, including storm sewer catch basins and stagnant water areas. 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.
