Town Route 07/10/2024

The Sutter-Yuba Mosquito & Vector Control District reports that in an effort to reduce the risk of West Nile Virus in the Sutter-Yuba area, District personnel will continue ultra low volume spraying for Sutter County town areas in Live Oak, Sutter, and Yuba City. Sutter County areas will be sprayed on Wednesday mornings. Yuba County town areas in Marysville, Linda, Edgewater, Olivehurst, Plumas Lake, and Wheatland will be sprayed on Thursday mornings.  Spraying will be performed with pickup mounted foggers every week starting as early as 3:30 AM and continuing up to 6:30 AM. All applications are predicated on mosquito abundance, disease activity and favorable weather conditions. Additional urban areas or spray mornings may be added if disease detections become elevated. The spray program will be discontinued in the fall, when we observe a significant drop in the mosquito population and disease activity.

For the 2024 season, the District will be using permethrin. This material is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency and applied according to label directions by or under the supervision of the District’s trained and certified technicians. 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.
