Acres Treated with Larvicide in January and February 2019

This table shows the number of acres treated with larvicide during January and February. Seasonal marshes and impounds remain full of water and are breeding mosquitoes.  The mosquito larvae are treated with larvicide as they reach the optimal growth stage to prevent emergence of adult mosquitoes. These sources will continue to need treatment until they evaporate during the dry season.
