With the introduction of West Nile virus into Salt Lake City, a shift in control measures was needed to treat the larval sources in the urban areas of the district. The production of peridomestic mosquitoes in standing water along street gutters and catch basins, needed to be addressed and abated. Because of the large amount of larval habitats present within Salt Lake City and the logistics involved with accessing and treating all the larval sources, they initiated a bike-based program starting in 2004. This program has drastically evolved over the last decade and is now a stable and effective component of their integrated mosquito management approach within the district.
This webinar will summarize the evolution of their urban bike program and provide details for equipment, methods, and costs associated with establishing such an effective and environmentally friendly program in other jurisdictions.
