"Blind Mosquito" aka Midge Notice:

Residents, please note that you will be seeing non-biting midges this time of year. Midges behave and look different from mosquitoes. Midges do not bite.

Midge_v_Mosquito

 Midges will sometimes cover your house or light colored surfaces (especially white). Midges are temporary, and will go away as the season progresses. We are not able to treat for midges using our mosquito control tools; it requires 10x more in order to control a midge. Instead, try turning off your porch lights over night. Please also make sure your window screens are intact.

      Have you heard about Chikungunya?

Chikungunya (pronunciation: \chik-en-gun-ye click to hear pronunciationExternal Web Site Icon) virus is transmitted to people by mosquitoes. The most common symptoms of chikungunya virus infection are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash. Outbreaks have occurred in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans. In late 2013, chikungunya virus was found for the first time in the Americas on islands in the Caribbean. Chikungunya virus is not currently found in the United States. There is a risk that the virus will be imported to new areas by infected travelers. There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat chikungunya virus infection. Travelers can protect themselves by preventing mosquito bites. When traveling to countries with chikungunya virus, use insect repellent, wear long sleeves and pants, and stay in places with air conditioning or that use window and door screens.
