[ARCHIVED] West Nile Virus
North of the BNSF train tracks was treated for mosquitos 8/31/2021. Due to a brief weather interruption they had to stop, so the South side still needs treatment. Mosquito Abatement for residents South of the BNSF train tracks will occur tonight Wednesday, September 1st between the hours of 8:00 pm and midnight. Due to the planned Chamber of Commerce Live Music event in the downtown from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, spraying will begin south of 55th Street at 8 PM and will not be near the downtown area until well pass 9 PM.
Zenivex E4 as manufactured by Central Life Sciences is the product which will be used.
Please plan your evening activities accordingly. The West Nile Virus within the adult mosquito population has reached the level where transmission of humans is likely. Clarendon Blackhawk Mosquito Abatement District has had multiple positives from the Clarendon Hills trap and surrounding areas.
Please protect yourself from mosquitos. Some suggested personal protective measures include use of mosquito repellents, wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and limiting outdoor exposure from dusk to dawn. Reducing mosquito breeding sites like standing water around the home, can further decrease the risk for WNV exposure.
