Heavy rains prompt mosquito alert and advisory; DNREC Mosquito Control working to thwart big rise in numbers

2013 Mosquito Control season begins this week with spraying wooded wetlands

Weather permitting, DNREC’s Mosquito Control Section has started its annual spring woodland-pool spraying this week, treating wooded wetlands for control of immature (larval) mosquitoes near populated areas in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties. Approximately 5,000 to 8,000 acres with woodland pools where early season mosquitoes breed in quantity will be strategically larvicided by helicopter, and possibly fixed-wing aircraft.
