The Village has entered into an agreement with Clarke Mosquito Control that is designed to reduce the population of both nuisance mosquitoes and mosquitos that are active carries of diseases. The sprays are only a portion of the services provided by Clarke. The timing of the sprays are determined by Clarke and are based upon the presence of West Niles in the area. Clarke monitors over 75 sites within the Village. Included in the program is the ability for residents to call the “Mosquito Hotline” at 800-942-2555. Residents are encouraged to call and report standing water or stagnant unkempt swimming pools. Clarke will test the standing water, if breeding mosquitos are found Clarke will place larvicide into the standing water and monitor. Clarke will also answer questions about mosquito control and provide information regarding West Nile Virus. Also information regarding Zika virus can be found on Clarke’s website at https://www.clarke.com/fight-zika-together. We live in an area surrounded by ponds and marshes. As a reminder: always be diligent and take responsibility for spraying yourselves, family members and your own property to ward off mosquitos.
Upon Clarke’s notification of a spray, the Village will send out a CTY notification to residents.
