Due to detections of an invasive Aedes aegypti mosquito discovered in Yuba County neighborhoods, a larvicide spray has been scheduled. Larvicide Spraying will be in the Olivehurst area, August 4th as early as 3:30 am and lasting up until 6:00am. Spraying will be performed with a pickup mounted blower. Although this material poses a low risk to human health, some people may prefer to avoid or minimize 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. Those living in or near this neighborhood that notice a small (about 1/4 inch) black and white marked mosquito that bites in the day time and often enters homes, should report them to the District (530) 674-5456.
