The Mosquito Service Provider for the City of Winnemucca and Humboldt County, VDCI, will soon begin aerial missions targeting adult mosquitoes in the Humboldt River basin.
Flies are buzzing, mosquitoes are stinging and crickets are marching in Humboldt County and the Humboldt County Board of Commissioners discussed abatement efforts at their most recent meeting on June 5 with all members present. State Entomologist Jeff Knight updated the Commission on local cricket mitigation. According to Knight, there is an aerial flight tentatively set for June 19 to spray the crickets and ground applications started just a few weeks ago, but the weather and intermittent rain storms have been a challenge. Approximately 20,000 acres will be treated, including Winnemucca Mountain.
