Red Alert!!!!! Delta District #1 has had multiple West Nile virus positive trap pools since early June, and with the concurrence of high temperatures, high persistent humidity, and rainstorms, these mosquitoes may be moving along the river corridor into the North Fork District. If you live or recreate anywhere from the confluence in Delta all the way east through our District, please, please take precautions at this time, including using appropriate clothing and insect repellent. Remember heightened mosquito activity occurs at dawn and dusk.

A review of various types of repellents for all age groups is available at the Environmental Working Group (www.ewg.org). Our crew has been hard at work throughout the District. If you are seeing increased mosquito activity, please report the location to the 527-6681 NFMAD number.

As needed during the month of October there will be specific targeted spraying to minimize the the overwintering Culex mosquito population.

They may then emerge in fall, winter, or spring whenever the air temperature is to their liking. Please police your property, empty out pot bottoms or other gardening gear, and check around sheds for standing water. Prevent Culex from laying eggs or harboring in your home!

NOTIFICATION

Currently, NFMAD is the only District in Colorado giving public notification of adulticide applications!!! Notification of adulticide spraying will occur when the routing comes within 200 feet of a residence or boundary of organic farms/agriculture.  All efforts are being made to map organic/biodynamic agriculture and bee hives, and signs are laminated signs are available for posting on gates, fences, etc., for pesticide-sensitive residents and organic agriculture so there is consistent, easily recognizable signs for the crew in the event of truck-mounted fogging. A “no spray” sign may be obtained free of charge by calling the NFMAD 970-527-6681. Notification of targeted and focal adulticide spraying will be made on the Website News/homepage, the Facebook page for NFMAD, and to the affected residents in town if the targeted area is within 200 feet.   If adulticide is applied using the truck mounted sprayer rather than the smaller backpack/ATV units, notification extends to every property in the immediate area, by door hanger, telephone, and/or a crew member going door to door.

EPIDEMIC CONSIDERATIONS FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY AND ORGANIC FARMS

Posted fence lines and properties will not be sprayed with adulticide by NFMAD unless epidemic levels of West Nile viral illness have been reached in the North Fork District, specifically involving the posted property  and ALL other efforts to mitigate the mosquito issues have utterly failed…a remote and distant possibility, and truly a worst case scenario.  There have been great strides in environmentally-conscious, low impact mosquito control products in recent years.  Terminix is a non-toxic, micro-encapsulated garlic product that acts as an adulticide, an attractant, and a barrier spray.  Terminix does not even have an EPA registration number, given its total lack of toxicity.   However, despite all advances in control products, it is of utmost importance to care for your own property, drain boggy, swampy, marshy areas, clear drainage channels, and practice responsible irrigation of your organic crops and orchards, to avoid the need for mosquito abatement products at all, let alone adulticide.

COMPREHENSIVE FOGGING Obviously, this is the last phase of the NFMAD operations plan, and comprehensive truck-mounted fogging will only occur if epidemic West Nile is present, and threshold variables indicate need because all earlier phases have failed to control the adult mosquito population within the District.   An email and telephone list is being compiled for each grid of the District for notification of comprehensive spraying or truck mounted fogging, and KVNF will make public service announcements, and direct residents to places of notice.  This is not a legal requirement, but a courtesy to our fellow residents.   In the unlikely event of comprehensive fogging in the District, announcements will also be posted at the Paonia library, Paonia Town Hall, Hotchkiss town hall, Delta County annex,  as well as the post offices, in addition to the KVNF radio announcements.  Web posting will also occur.     AERIAL FOGGING The North Fork District will not sponsor or condone aerial spraying of any kind, and will vigorously oppose any efforts to aerial spray from local, state, and federal government entities.   Given the rich and varied agriculture of the North Fork river corridor, aerial fogging would cause vast levels of economic and environmental hardship for the District’s organic and biodynamic farms, orchards, vineyards, dairies, and other registered cottage industries.  Many of the residents of the North Fork District have recently gone on record opposing any form of aerial fogging.   The NFMAD board is committed to protecting the health and safety of our residents, as well as the economic and environmental health of this valley, and will use a full phase program of larval, pupal, and barrier products, before using targeted, focal adulticide spraying.  Blanket, comprehensive fogging from the air, or on the ground, has proven to be ineffective in adult mosquito control, as well as causing many issues for District residents.  Major fogging of entire towns and areas will only occur if there is a clear and present danger of epidemic West Nile, or other mosquito-borne illness in the proposed treatment area, and all other methods of control have utterly failed.
