The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District (NSMAD) will be conducting a wide-area larval mosquito control operation (WALMCO) in portions of Lincolnwood and Skokie on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m, weather permitting.
This larval control operation will utilize Altosid® SR-20, a mosquito growth regulator, applied via our ULV (ultra-low volume) equipment. It is intended to reach breeding sources that are difficult to treat due to their inaccessibility via traditional methods. This larval control operation is targeting Culex mosquitoes, which can transmit West Nile virus, to prevent them from reaching the adult stage.
The specific NSMAD map number to be treated is:
C-18 Lincolnwood & Skokie
