Pre­serves may OK mosquito spray­ing


In a move of­fi­cials say could pro­tect DuPage County against mosquito- borne ill­nesses, the for­est pre­serve district may al­low spray­ing to kill adult mos­qui­toes on a caseby- case ba­sis. Com­mis­sion­ers are re­view­ing a pro­posed mosquito pol­icy that out­lines cri­te­ria that must be met be­fore in­sec­ti­cides can be used to tar­get adult mos­qui­toes on district land. The ex­ist­ing pol­icy al­lows for “adul­ti­cide” dur­ing a pub­lic health emer­gency. But that pol­icy is vague, of­fi­cials said. — Robert Sanchez
