Berks Conservation District to Spray for Mosquitos in City

by Berks County Conservation District

Sep 08, 2022

The Berks County Conservation District Mosquito-Borne Disease Program will be conducting a truck-mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control operation in the City of Reading, with a focus on the areas near Charles Evans Cemetery and residential areas located in the areas of 11th and Union Streets. Residential and recreational areas will be sprayed to control adult mosquitoes.  The control work will begin around dusk on Thursday, September 8th.

High populations of adult mosquitos capable of transmitting West Nile Virus have been detected in these areas.

The truck mounted ULV spray will be conducted by Berks County Conservation District.  I will be on-site for the application.  The business license for Berks County is BU 1391 and my applicator’s license is #71300.  The product used will be AquaDuet applied at a rate of 1.0 oz/ac or less.  This product is designed to provide quick knockdown and effective control of adult mosquitoes.

Weather conditions and other unexpected events could delay or cancel this spray operation.  If this operation is canceled, it will be rescheduled for Monday, September 12th.  Please contact Jolie Coates via at (610) 372-4657 ext 218 if you have any questions or concerns.
