VILLAGE OF MUNDELEIN: Village-wide Mosquito Spray Planned

Local Government

By Press release submission | Jun 28, 2019


Village of Mundelein issued the following announcement on June 27.

To help reduce the level of mosquitoes during the summer months, the Village of Mundelein contracts with Clarke Environmental, Inc. for mosquito abatement. The next scheduled community-wide mosquito spraying is set to take place this Saturday evening, June 29th, weather permitting.

Much of the control activity is focused on "pre-hatch" treatment, killing the mosquito larvae before they hatch. In spite of the efforts to reduce mosquito larvae, when conditions are right, mosquitoes may still reach nuisance levels.

When this occurs, the Village schedules a community-wide spraying to control the adult mosquito population. The decision to spray is based on a number of factors including: light trap levels, nuisance complaints, weather conditions, and coordination with Libertyville and Vernon Hills.

Spraying is done for the entire community. We are not able to spray single neighborhoods. The nuisance mosquito levels around town will vary. Heavily wooded or marshy areas, especially on the west side of town are more prone to mosquito activity.

Residents who would like to be included on the mosquito control night spray notification list may contact the Mosquito Hotline at 1-800-942-2555 or visit www.clarkeportal.com/hotline to sign up. You may also call or go online to report mosquito annoyance and standing water on your property.
