The West Umatilla Mosquito Control District and the North Morrow Vector Control District will be conducting targeted aerial mosquito control spraying with a twin engine airplane after sunset tonight – weather permitting.
This aerial spray is in response to a large hatch of mosquitoes impacting areas in both Western Umatilla County and Northern Morrow County. This application was initially scheduled for last week but was canceled and had to be rescheduled due to the windy weather. The weather is now forecasted to be within the required limits for the aerial spray. If the weather changes and the application cannot be done, it will be done on the next available day.
A total of 10,000 acres are to be targeted in the Hwy 730 area between the cities of Umatilla and Irrigon. For more information, please contact the West Umatilla Mosquito Control District at 541-567-5201 or the North Morrow Vector Control District at 541-481-6082.
