With the amount of snowfall this winter and the precipitation expected through rainfall, the Animas Valley could see more than one high water event. Due to this potential, the Animas Mosquito Control District (AMCD) crews may need to access properties along the river to inspect for mosquito habitats more than once and, if needed, treat more than once.
Just a reminder that you will be seeing our people in your area. We will be attempting to contact you, the property owners/resident, for permission to inspect for mosquito habitats. If no one is at home, we will leave a ‘door hanger’ letting you know that we were there and would like to schedule another time for inspection.
If after our larval abatement activities you still have ‘flyers’, please call us at any time and let us know so we can send a crew back to that area for further inspection to try and find the habitat where larvae are breeding and hatching into adult ‘flyers’. We may also perform an evening fogging treatment to take care of the 'flyers'.
Please remember after each precipitation event to check your properties for ‘standing water’ (in buckets, tarps, tires, toys, anything that can hold water) and, if possible, dump it. If it cannot be dumped, let AMCD know and we will treat it with the appropriate product.
As always, we at AMCD want to thank all of our District residents for your support and for working with us in years past, in the present and hopefully into the future!
