Vector Control- West Nile Virus

We received this information from the Environmental Health Division today:

There were two separate positive mosquito pools for West Nile Virus collected from traps near Morse Road and also Webster Park Avenue recently. Both tests were confirmed last Friday, July 28th, by our staff.  Due to these positive West Nile Virus mosquito pools, our Vector Control Program will be spraying in Clintonville on Friday, August 4th  from 3:30 am-6:30 am.

The boundaries for the first spraying are as follows:

Croswell Road to the North

North Broadway to the South

High Street to the East

SR 315 and the Olentangy River to the West

The boundaries for this second spraying are as follows:

Charleston Ave. to the North

Beaumont Road to the South

Colerain Ave. to the East

High Street to the West

A press release and spray map was issued Tuesday, August 1st  At this moment all requests to opt out of mosquito spraying will be honored that have already been filed.

The positive West Nile Virus pools do serve as a reminder for us to continue protecting ourselves from mosquito bites and to eliminate stagnant water from our properties including places such as gutters, rain barrels, and bird baths. One can also protect themselves from mosquito bites by using insect repellents and by minimizing their time spent outside during the late evening and early morning hours. Please let Ryan Younge, RS, the Vector Control Program Manager, know if you would like to discuss in further detail our mosquito reduction activities planned in Clintonville this week.
