In an effort to control mosquito populations and reduce the current high annoyance levels, the Village will be conducting a Mosquito spray around dusk the evening of August 7. 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.
