[ARCHIVED] Village-Wide Mosquito Spraying Scheduled to Occur Wednesday (9/10) After Dusk

Mosquito populations and activity are currently very high throughout town. The rainfall totals we’ve experienced have spiked breeding, with an additional brood due to hatch over this coming weekend. In addition, the current high humidity and warm overnight temperatures are creating ideal conditions resulting in the heavy mosquito activity. The long-range weather forecast indicates a potential drop in temperatures. According to one weather source, Friday (9/12) projected overnight lows will hit the mid 40°s. This should significantly reduce mosquito activity.

In an effort to control mosquito populations and reduce the current high annoyance levels now, the Mayor and Village Board has authorized a Village-wide spraying to occur on the evening of Wednesday, September 10th (weather permitting). Please call Clarke Environmental with any questions regarding the Village-wide spray at (800) 942-2555.

Although the Village has authorized the Village-wide spray, it is still advised that residents take precautions when outside especially around dusk. The DuPage County Health Department recommends the use of mosquito repellents with about 30% DEET (about 10% DEET for children age 2-12). Adults should supervise repellent use on children. Do not use any repellents on children under 2 years of age without consulting your doctor. Apply them to clothes whenever possible and apply sparingly to skin if the label permits.
