Acres Treated in September 2018

This table shows the number of acres treated with larvicide during August and September. The largest proportion of acres treated are in marshes and impounds, mainly from helicopter treatments. Creeks and catch basins are also continuously treated in summer. Although the acreage from creeks and catch basins is relatively small, they are numerous and can produce abundant adult mosquitoes without proactive inspections and larvicide treatments. Catch basin treatments will continue until heavy fall rains begin. The majority of the acres categorized as “other” are cordgrass applications.
