Document Description
The large increase in diagnosed cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) in Orange County in 2014 and a high incidence in 2015 have prompted the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District (OCMVCD) to increase its adulticide program to include urban areas. In addition, two invasive vector mosquitoes, Aedes aegypti and Ae albopictus, have become established in areas of Orange County, Los Angeles County and several other counties in southern and central California. These species are excellent vectors of dengue, Zika and chikungunya viruses. The adulticides proposed for use include ultra-low volume (ULV) applications of pyrethroids by backpack units, vehicle-mounted units, and aircraft. The District also proposes to use residual sprays, an insect growth regulator, and a biological organism in the new program.
