San Gabriel Valley Pesticide Treatment August 14
In an ongoing effort to control the infestation of Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) in the San
Gabriel Valley, the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District (SGVMVCD) will conduct
two truck-mounted mosquito control treatments in the early morning hours of Thursday August 14,
The application will target immature mosquitoes. The Asian tiger mosquito is a primary vector of
chikungunya - a painful disease spreading rapidly throughout the Caribbean and as of August 5, over
500 travel-associated cases and four locally transmitted cases have been reported in the U.S.
The first of the two treatments will cover an area of El Monte north of (and including) Lower Azusa Rd,
east of (and including) Buffington Rd, south of (and including) Clark St, and west of (and including)
Durfee Ave. The second treatment will cover an area of Duarte north of (and including) E Duarte Rd,
