MOSQUITO FOGGING EVENT: BISHOP – FAIRGROUNDS, HIGHLANDS, DIXON LANE 

Mosquito control ULV fogging applications are planned to be performed in and around the Tri  County Fairgrounds and surrounding residential areas along with Highlands Mobile Park and  the Dixon Lane area on Friday 9/1/23 and Saturday 9/2/23. Crews will be using truck mounted  fogging equipment to control excessive adult mosquitoes.

Fogging operations are planned to start in the morning between 4:30 and 6:30 am depending on  the weather. If it is too windy or temperatures are too cold, fogging is not effective and will need  to be postponed.

Excessive water spreading in inaccessible areas has increased the number of biting mosquitoes  in our communities, along with the threat of mosquito borne arborvirus confirmed in the area. Protect yourself from mosquito bites by wearing long pants and long-sleeved shirts when you  are outside, particularly in the morning and evening hours. To prevent bites, the California  Department of Public Health recommends using EPA-registered insect repellents that contain  one of the following active ingredients: DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus  (OLE), or Para-menthane-diol (PMD). Look for one of these ingredients on the front or back of  repellent containers. Products with a higher percentage of an active ingredient will work longer  to protect you. Please read and follow label directions before applying repellents.

Please report any mosquito problems to the Owens Valley Mosquito Abatement Program by  calling (760) 873-7853 or visiting https://www.inyocounty.us/services/agriculture/mosquito-abatement .
