Acres Treated in May 2018

This table shows the number of acres treated with larvicide during April and May. The largest proportion of acres treated are from marshes and impounds that continue to hold water, although that area was substantially decreased from April to May as the higher temperatures and decreased rainfall caused evaporation. Seasonal treatment in creeks began in May, which is reflected in the increase in acreage.
