Following last week's fogging operations in San Jose, all mosquitoes from post-fogging traps tested negative for WNV. There are no further plans for fogging operations at this time.  The good news is that we achieved a 58-67 percent reduction of mosquitoes in the fogging zone compared to untreated areas nearby.

Ground fogging operations to suppress West Nile Virus mosquitoes in southeast San José were successfully completed at 4:40 a.m. on Thursday, September 15, 2011.

The fogging area was generally bordered by Hillsdale Avenue on the north; Pearl Ave., Kenton Ln., Glenmont Dr., and Windfield Blv on the west; Monterey Ave., Apple Blossom Dr., Lean Ave., Dunn Ave. on the east; and Curie Dr., and Foothill Dr. on the south.

Always contact the Vector Control District if you are being bothered by mosquitoes or know of a potential mosquito-breeding source.
