The Sacramento-Yolo Vector Control District treated a number of Davis locations in the past week to control for mosquitos that may potentially carry West Nile Virus.
Arroyo Park was treated Friday, June 27; Pioneer Park in east Davis and a section of the Putah Creek Greenbelt in southeast Davis were treated on Thursday, June 26; and areas surrounding El Macero on June 20. Some aerial spraying in and around the Yolo Bypass and in South Sacramento is planned through Monday.
A total of 21 dead birds and mosquitos have tested positive in Yolo County. Five of the birds were found in Davis.
All Davis applications used ultra-low-volume ground spray, and more information about the specific products can be found at http://www.fightthebite.net/spraying-update/.
