LOCK HAVEN — Centre County Mosquito Disease Control will be conducting a truck mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control operation in parts of Dunnstable and Woodward Townships this week.

Residential areas in these townships will be sprayed for adult mosquitoes. The control work will begin late evening on Wednesday.

Elevated populations of nuisance mosquitoes have been detected in several areas in these municipalities.

The truck mounted ULV spray will be conducted by Centre County Mosquito Disease Control with assistance from PA Department of Environmental Protection. The product that will be used is Biomist which is designed to provide quick knockdown and effective control of adult mosquitoes.

Weather conditions and other unexpected events could delay or cancel this spray operation.
