SAN MATEO CO. (BCN) — The San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District will conduct mosquito fogging in an area located between San Mateo and Foster City tonight, according to SMCMVCD officials.
The fogging was prompted by the discovery of West Nile Virus in adult mosquitoes collected in the Marina Lagoon area of San Mateo, SMCMVCD
The fogging will be done by a truck and will begin at 9 p.m. and end at 5 a.m. Monday morning.
The area where the fogging will occur is bounded by U.S. Highway 101 to the west, state Highway 92 to the south, Bridgepoint Circle to the east and East Third Avenue to the north.
“These mosquitoes pose an immediate threat to human health. We hope that by acting quickly we can ensure that nobody is infected with West Nile virus in this area,” the district’s Public Health Education and Outreach Officer Megan Caldwell said.
