Geneva to spray for mosquitoes Sept. 18-19

West Nile virus discovered in mosquito traps

GENEVA – Clarke trucks will be spraying a mosquito control application citywide at dusk on Sept. 18 to dawn on Sept. 19 to reduce the adult insect population in Geneva, officials announced in a news release.

The city’s contractor will be using a synthetic treatment that is safe for humans and pets, although people with asthma and other respiratory conditions are advised to stay indoors with their windows closed during the misting application and one hour afterward.

Residents can report mosquito nuisances and standing water issues directly to Clarke via the company’s online portal at www.clarkeportal.com/hotline or subscribe to receive advanced spraying notifications when registering.

Mosquito control applications are subject to rescheduling due to inclement weather. Updates will be posted on the city’s website, www.geneva.il.us, if necessary.

Clarke recently identified the West Nile virus in mosquito traps located in Geneva and surrounding communities. For more information on West Nile or any other mosquito-borne illness, visit the Kane County Health Department’s website at www.kanehealth.com.
