The Clarendon Blackhawk Mosquito Abatement District (the "District") established in 1968, is responsible for area mosquito control efforts; typically conducting larval control programs during summer months when mosquito populations are present. The District does not conduct routine adult mosquito control operations. Adult control is the least effective approach to mosquito control with only localized, temporary benefits. However, adult control is the only tool available to use against an adult mosquito population involved in a disease transmission cycle. Hence, the District will only implement residential adult control operations as a contingency measure in effort to minimize or break a viral transmission cycle. Primary triggers considered before implementing adult mosquito control efforts are: 1) Number of dead birds found having subsequent confirmation by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) of West Nile Virus (WNV); 2) Confirmation of viral activity within the mosquito population obtained by the DuPage County Health Department; 3) Time of season effecting a viral transmission cycle; 4) Viral activity reported in adjacent states; 5) Confirmation of equine cases; and 6) Confirmation of human cases.
