On June 14th agricultural areas will be treated for adult mosquitoes with ground fogging.  Spraying will be performed weekly starting at sunset and lasting 2 to 3 hours.  Starting June 23rd ultra low volume spraying will begin in the Wheatland, Plumas Lake, Olivehurst, Linda, Marysville, south Yuba City, Live Oak, Sutter, Tierra Buena, Meridian and Robbins areas. Spraying will usually take place on Thursday evenings with Meridian and Robbins being sprayed on Wednesday evenings.
The District will be using a combination of insecticides including Pyrethins, Pyrethroids and Naled.  These materials are registered by the Environmental Protection Agency and applied according to label directions by the District's trained and certified technicians and contractors.  Although these materials pose a low risk to human health, some people may prefer to avoid or minimize the exposure by staying indoors, keeping their windows closed and turning off their window-mounted air conditioners, evaporative coolers and whole house fans when spraying is taking place in the immediate area.
