July 23 is a backup date if conditions are not right for application. As the insecticides to be applied are toxic to bees, we encourage any beekeepers in the area to take necessary precautions. Areas that we will focus on are Humboldt River corridor and Water treatment facility holding ponds, along with Elko City Parks and Elko Regional Airport. We also encourage everyone in the area to assist with mosquito abatement efforts by emptying any stagnant water from tires, boats, buckets, etc. as these areas are the perfect breeding ground for these pests.
