Each year, the City helps control the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses by reducing the mosquito population through operations that include surveillance, monitoring, and spraying. Mosquito spraying operations within the Elmhurst Community are performed by Clarke Mosquito Control Company and are performed using environmentally sensitive agents. Residents can help reduce the potential for mosquito-borne illnesses by eliminating standing water where mosquitoes breed and by using a DEET insect repellent when outdoors. This is especially true during dawn, dusk, and early evening hours.
Clarke Mosquito Contro will be performing an application for adult mosquito control in Elmhurst on Thursday evening, June 13th , weather permitting. This will be the first application for adult mosquito control this season.
Any questions can be asked to Clarke directly at 800-942-2555.
