Mosquito Spraying due to West Nile findings

Here is the information we received about the upcoming spray:


The Delaware County Mosquito-Borne Disease control program will conduct an Ultra Low Volume (ULV) mosquito adulticide spray in portions of Upper Chichester, Lower Chichester, Marcus Hook, and Trainer Boro in Delaware County.  Residential and recreational areas within this treatment area will be sprayed to control adult mosquitoes.  This is a result of high trap counts and the identification of positive mosquito pools in the area.


Operations will take place in the evening hours of Thursday, August 24, 2017 provided that weather and environmental conditions remain suitable for the operation.  If weather conditions or other unexpected events cancel or delay this spray operation, then a rain date is scheduled for August 28, 2017.  The Delaware County Mosquito-Borne Disease control program will perform the work using truck mounted spraying equipment with the business license BU10544 visible on the equipment.  The product used will be Deltagard applied at a rate of 0.66 ounces per acre.  This product is designed to provide quick knockdown and effective control of adult mosquitoes.  Treatment will commence at approximately 19:30 and conclude by 23:00 hours.



Attached is a boundary map for the treatment area.

Mosquito traps, for West Nile testing, may be seen within the Borough. Please do not disturb them. We have had these traps mistaken for a possible bomb in the past so we would like to familiarize the residents with them.

Plan is also available at the Borough Office and is open to review, questions and comments through September 8, 2017.
