Mosquito Abatement Scheduled for June 28th

To reduce mosquito populations safely and effectively, eradicating its larvae before they become biting adults is crucial. Larvae thrive in stagnant water which is primarily why the SCA’s integrated mosquito management service treats standing water in trenches along the bike trail with a product called Spinosad, which is also derived from a naturally occurring soil bacterium. It specifically targets mosquito larvae and a few other insects once applied, it has little to no toxicity to plants, people, pets, and local wildlife.  The City of Chicago Department of Public Health proactively treats storm drains with mosquito abatement. Although, we cannot eliminate mosquitos, we can certainly work together to help reduce the numbers.
