Spraying for mosquitoes set in Geneva

GENEVA – Geneva’s mosquito abatement contractor will be spraying an application of insecticide citywide on Wednesday, Aug. 20 to control the adult insect population, according to a news release.
 
Spraying is scheduled to take place from dusk to dawn starting Wednesday, Aug. 20, into Thursday, Aug. 21.
 
Clarke Environmental will be using a synthetic treatment that is safe for humans and pets, but people with asthma and other respiratory conditions are advised to stay indoors with their windows closed during the misting application and one hour afterward, the release stated.
 
Geneva is again coordinating its mosquito spraying with Batavia and St. Charles to provide a more effective coverage area over the Tri-Cities. West Nile Virus has not been detected in Geneva to date in 2014, but has been found in mosquito traps in both Batavia and St. Charles this month.
 
The sprayings will be rescheduled if it rains or if high winds enter the forecast. A new spraying date then would be posted at www.geneva.il.us.
