Omak Public Works Department will be implementing a mosquito control program this year. This is the first year the crew will directly take on these responsibilities. Spring has sprung a little earlier than usual and we are scrambling to get the necessary equipment and supplies to get going. We have been working with Moses Lake Mosquito District #1 and vendors to come up with a program that will fit the needs of our City.
Larvacides and adulticides will be used to control the mosquitos. Larvacides will be applied to known breeding sites to reduce the adult hatch of mosquitos. Adulticides will generally be applied in the evening hours after dusk.
We don't expect to get all of the mosquitos, but we should see significant reductions in numbers. Our program will span over several months and we should see better results than previous single aerial applications.
Mosquitos can hatch in very small quantities of water. We need everyone to look around their houses and businesses for receptacles that hold unneeded water. An old tire, bucket, garbage can lid, unmaintained bird bath, etc., will produce a hatch that will infest neighboring properties and re-populate previously treated areas. To have a successful program, we all will need to be diligent in our efforts.
The Omak City Council is holding a Public Hearing on Monday, May 4, 2015, at 7:00 pm in City Hall to take testimony and receive comments on the proposed 2015 Water System Plan Amendment.
