Public Notice of Mosquito Control Activities

The Skamania County Mosquito Control District will begin seasonal activities around March 16, 2015.   Only when mosquito larva is found will they use one of the following larvicides.

AquaBac G (Bacillus thuringiensis, subspecies Israelensis): specific for mosquito larva

  1. Altosid (S-Methoprene) a growth inhibitor active on early stages of mosquito larva
  2. Agnique (poly-alpha –w-hydroxy): a monomolecular surface film used for later stages of larva and pupa

Later in the season and only in those areas where adult mosquitoes reach thresholds as specified in District IMM plan or if mosquito transmitted disease is detected, will the district adulticide using:

Aqua Reslin (permethrin) which is fogged at a rate between 0.0015 and 0.007 ounces per acre.

Mosquito control activities will continue throughout the season until mid to late October depending on weather conditions
