Area expands for West Nile fogging in San Mateo tonight
July 30, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

San Mateo County mosquito officials will once again fog in San Mateo Wednesday night after more mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile Virus in the 94402 zip code area and have expanded the area to include the Shoreview Neighborhood extending now southeast to the Foster City Lagoon.

The areas to be treated include the area east of Highway 101, bordered loosely by Beacon Avenue to the north, Fashion Island Boulevard to the south, and Ocean View Avenue to the East. Additionally, on the west side of US Highway 101, fogging will occur within an area bordered by East Fifth Avenue to the north, Concar Drive to the south, and Palm Avenue to the west, according to the San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District.

According to SMCMVD, the chemical to be used is Zenivex E4. This is an oil-based formula that is EPA approved to be safe for use in an urban environment and there are no precautionary measures that need to be taken by residents within the fogging area.

The treatment is scheduled between 9 p.m. July 30 and 5 a.m. July 31. Residents are advised to close all windows and stay inside. The district recommends bringing any clothing, children’s toys and pet bowls indoors.

Garden vegetables should also be thoroughly washed before consuming.

The San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District collected adult mosquitoes that tested positive on July 25.

For more information and to see a map of the exact fogging location visit the district’s website at www.smcmad.org or call (650) 344-8592.
