Screen Shot 2023 06 06 at 12.24.45 PM


Mosquito control ULV fogging applications are planned to be performed in the town of Independence and Black Rock areas tomorrow morning on Wednesday 7/26/23 and in  Aspendell on Friday 7/28/23. 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 have increased the number of biting  mosquitoes in our communities. 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
