City Encourages Woodlanders to Protect Themselves against Mosquitos

The City of Woodland and the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito & Vector Control District urge residents to continue practicing the habits that keep us safe from mosquitos. Woodlanders can rely on the “District D’s” of mosquito prevention:

  • DRAIN standing water that may produce mosquitoes.  
  • DAWN and DUSK are times to be mindful of mosquitos while outdoors.    
  • DRESS appropriately with long sleeves and pants if possible.  
  • DEFEND yourself by using an effective insect repellent. 
  • DOOR and window screens should be in good working condition.
  • DISTRICT personnel are also available to address any mosquito problems. Call them at 1-800-429-1022 or visit www.FIGHTtheBITE.net 

Earlier this week, mosquitos collected from Woodland tested positive for West Nile Virus. In addition, last week Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency confirmed a human case of West Nile here in Yolo County. In order to reduce the number of infected mosquitoes, the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito & Vector Control District will continue its laboratory surveillance efforts as well as conduct ground treatments throughout town.

Residents can sign up for Mosquito & Vector Control District email notifications at http://www.fightthebite.net/spray-notification/. You can view the latest West Nile activity here: https://www.fightthebite.net/media/wnv-activity-map.
