[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Spraying Scheduled June 28

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: June 25, 2020

The Village of Westmont contracts with Clarke Mosquito Management to help control mosquito populations.  The next community-wide mosquito spraying treatment is scheduled for June 28, 2020.  The product used for this application is OMRI-listed and approved for use in residential areas.  The treatment is applied by a truck and is performed between dusk and dawn when adult mosquitoes are most active.  At various times throughout the year, there will be additional treatments applied throughout our community.  

As mosquitoes become more of a nuisance over the summer and fall, citizens can follow these steps:

Use Repellent

When outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active, use mosquito repellent on skin that is not covered by clothing.

Limit Outdoor Activities at Dusk and Dawn

Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk - try to limit outdoor activities that these times. If you are outside, cover up as much skin as possible. It’s also recommended to wear light colored long-sleeved shirts, pants, shoes and socks.

Eliminate Standing Water

Eliminate mosquito breeding sites, such as leaking hoses, standing water in tires, plastic containers, watering bowls for pets, and other solid surfaces that hold water, by removing standing water.

Make Sure Windows and Screens are Secure

Make sure doors and windows have tight fitting screens by repairing or replacing screens that have holes or tears.

Mosquito Hotline

Residents may sign up to receive advance notice alerts regarding when this occurs. To get up to date information and/or sign up for alert notices, please call the Clarke Mosquito Hotline at 1-800-942-2555.  For additional information, please visit the Clarke website.
