The battle against mosquitoes moves to roadside catch basins next week in many Central Okanagan neighbourhoods.

Weather permitting from Monday July 3 through Friday, July 7, you may see members of the RDCO Mosquito Control program crew wearing high visibility vests driving scooters or a Chevy pickup with Mosquito Control signage on them, stopping at every roadside catch basin in the City of Kelowna, District of Lake Country, District of Peachland, a portion of West Kelowna Estates in the City of West Kelowna and the Sunset Ranch community in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.  

They’ll drop water soluble pouches containing pellets of an environmentally approved mosquito larvicide into the catch basin.

Approximately 10,000 roadside catch basins will be treated as these areas participate in funding the Regional District of Central Okanagan Mosquito Control Program.  Another round of catch basin treatments is expected later this summer.

If you’d like to know more about this program and how you can help reduce mosquito breeding sites around your property, visit www.regionaldistrict.com/mosquitoes.
