County Health Dept to Spray for Mosquitoes Wed in Bristol, Falls, Middletown and Northampton Twp’s,
The Bucks County West Nile Virus Prevention Program will conduct ultra-low volume (ULV) sprays and barrier mosquito control operations to reduce high populations of mosquitoes capable of transmitting West Nile Virus Wednesday, August 11th, 2021 in Northampton, Middletown, Bristol and Falls Townships.
The treatments will be administered via truck-mounted and backpack equipment, spraying mosquito habitats in residential and park locations. Trucks used in the spray are identified with Bucks County seal logos located on the doors. The truck equipment dispenses Biomist 3+15 Adulticide at a rate of 0.75 ounces per acre. The backpack equipment will spray Flit 10 EC at a rate of 7.5 ounces per acre. These products are designed to provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations. The application materials have a very low toxicity profile to mammals and will have negligible impact to non-target insects and the environment.
The locales to be treated in Middletown Township will be bounded by Quincy Drive, Cobalt Cross and Ridge Roads, and Red Rose Drive, Forsythia Dr. S, Fallenrock Road, Forsythia Drive N, Snowball drive, Frosty Hollow Road, Upper Orchard Drive, Juniper Drive and Jollybrook Road.
