Cache Mosquito Abatement District (CMAD)

West Nile Virus

As of September 30, there were 49 people and 27 horses confirmed as positive for West Nile Virus in Utah. Three people died due to WNV.

Mosquitoes that were trapped in Amalga, Benson, and Mendon on August 1st tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV). Nibley had WNV-positive mosquitoes that were trapped on August 8th. On August 19th, Logan City mosquito abatement reported that WNV was confirmed in mosquitoes it had trapped. West Nile Virus has also been found in mosquitoes from Box Elder, Carbon, Davis, Duchesne, Salt Lake, Uintah, Utah, and Weber mosquito abatement districts.

Please be aware of the importance for personal protection when outside. The mosquitoes that carry WNV are active from dusk to dawn. Wear long sleeves and pants and use an approved mosquito repellent Also, drain any standing water to remove breeding habitat for the mosquitoes.

2017 MOSQUITO SEASON

Abatement activities will end the evening of October 5. Please call (435) 764-6839 to report high mosquito numbers in your area.

We use GIS (Geographic Information System) to track where we find mosquito larva, what compound we use to treat the standing water, and to record the results when we check back (larval growth stopped, larva dead, etc.). All of our foggers are equpipped with a GPS chip to not only track our route but to also gather information on the application rate, speed of the vehicle, and to stop fogging when we reach those properties that have requested no spraying (fogging). The foggers are calibrated to deliver a consistent droplet size at various travel speeds up to 20 mph. All of our workers are licensed by UDAF (Utah Department of Agriculture and Food) to apply pesticides.
