[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Spraying Scheduled For Aug. 21 In Geneva


Clarke vehicles will spray a mosquito control application citywide Monday, Aug. 21 to reduce the adult insect population in Geneva.

Spraying is scheduled from dusk to dawn from Aug. 21 into Tuesday, Aug. 22 after a mosquito surveillance trap recently tested positive for the West Nile Virus in Geneva.

The City’s contractor will use a synthetic treatment that is safe for humans and pets. However, people with asthma and other respiratory conditions are advised to stay indoors with their windows closed during the misting application and one hour afterward.

Residents can report mosquito nuisances and standing water issues directly to Clarke via the company’s online portal. People can subscribe to receive advanced spraying notifications from Clarke when registering.

The City also sends out mosquito spraying notifications. Residents can subscribe to “community alerts” by selecting the “Notify Me” button on the City’s website.

Mosquito control applications are subject to rescheduling due to inclement weather. Updates will be posted on the City’s website if necessary.

For tips on preventing West Nile or any other mosquito-borne illness, visit the Kane County Health Department’s website.
