Notice of Scheduled Adult Mosquito Insecticide Spraying

Please be advised that The City of Geneva, utilizing the services of Clarke, will be implementing a citywide application of insecticide during the period from dusk on Saturday, July 2 to dawn Sunday, July 3, 2011.

The City and Clarke utilize a synthetic pyrethroid named ANVIL for purposes of controlling the adult mosquito population. ANVIL is safe to humans if applied in strict conformance with the product labeling. Those individuals with asthma and other respiratory conditions are advised to stay indoors with windows closed during and at least 1 hour following the misting application.

ANVIL is applied by ultra low volume (ULV) misting equipment that accurately controls the size of the droplets (50 microns) and the application rates (0.21 to 0.62 of an ounce of ANVIL per acre). The only conditions that will cause a re-scheduling of the
ULV application are the presence of precipitation, high winds or temperatures at the time of application below 55 degrees F.

Should a re-scheduling of the ULV application be required, please check the City of Geneva website at for current status or stay tuned for additional email notification.
