Berks County mosquito spraying set for July 24th

Posted on October 13, 2013 – 03:10 pm

mosquito The Berks County West Nile Program will be conducting an ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control operation to reduce high populations of mosquitoes capable of transmitting West Nile Virus on July 24, 2013 in parts of Exeter Township.

The treatments will be administered via truck-mounted equipment, spraying residential and recreational mosquito habitat. The equipment dispenses Biomist 3+15 ULV at a rate of 0.75 ounces per acre. The product is designed to provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations. The application material has a very low toxicity profile to mammals and will have negligible impact to non-target insects and the environment.

Certain mosquito species carry the West Nile virus, which can cause humans to contract West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, all residents in areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of contracting West Nile encephalitis.

In 2013, West Nile virus has been detected in the following counties: Adams, Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Bucks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Franklin, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Luzerne, Northampton, and York.

Weather conditions and other unexpected events could delay or cancel this spray operation. If conditions do not allow application on July 24, 2013, the following evening will serve as the back-up spray date.

Individuals can take a number of precautionary measures around their homes to help eliminate mosquito-breeding areas, including:

• Dispose of cans, buckets, plastic containers, ceramic pots or similar containers that hold water.

• Properly dispose of discarded tires that can collect water. Stagnant water is where most mosquitoes breed.

• Drill holes in the bottom of outdoor recycling containers.

• Have clogged roof gutters cleaned every year as the leaves from surrounding trees have a tendency to plug drains.

• Turn over plastic wading pools when not in use.

• Turn over wheelbarrows and don’t let water stagnate in birdbaths.


Potty Training Help...

Hi, I'm looking for advise on potty training my 2 year old (almost 3) daughter. I have been working with her since she was about 1 year old (we started when she started walking). I have tried everything I can think of and none of it seems to work for her...I've bought the little potty that goes on the floor and the piece that just fits on the big toilet. She seems more interested in the piece that fits on the toilet seat, and I've gotten her to go a couple times, but she doesn't seem to want to stick with it. Everytime she does go she gets rewarded with candy, money, going swimming, new toys..
