West Nile virus found in mosquitoes, San Mateo neighborhood to be fogged Monday night
July 21, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

The San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District will conduct a fogging abatement treatment to kill off mosquitoes found with the West Nile virus at two sites in San Mateo from 11 p.m. on Monday to 5 a.m. on Tuesday.

The district will fog a half-mile radius around two detection sites with zip codes 94401 and 94028, which is roughly bounded by Peninsula and Tilton avenues and El Camino Real to North Humboldt street.

The district detected adult mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus on July 18 and will conduct treatment by using the chemical Pyrenone 25-5, which will evaporate by the morning, according to the district.

During the treatment hours, residents should keep windows and doors closed, keep animals inside and do not engage in any outdoor activities. Residents in the effected areas should also bring in pet food or water bowls, hanging laundry, children’s toys or be sure to wash items the following day. Garden vegetables should also be washed prior to consumption, according to the district.

In order to avoid mosquito bites, residents should drain any standing water and wear proper clothing and repellent, particularly during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.

If anyone notices a bird or squirrel carcass, they should report it to the West Nile virus hotline at www.westnile.ca.gov or call (877) 968-2473.

For more information about the fogging abatement treatment, call the district at (650) 344-8592.
