The San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District (SMCMVCD) has detected West Nile Virus (WNV) in adult mosquitoes collected on August 6, 2014, from two areas of the 94025 ZIP code area in Menlo Park. In response, the District will conduct a truck-mounted mosquito fogging treatment around the detection site, in an effort to prevent human cases of WNV. Weather-permitting, the mosquito fogging is scheduled for this Monday, August 11, 2014, between 9:00 pm and 5:00 am.

A map of the fogging location can be found on the District website. Residents with questions can call the District at 650-344-8592 Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
Mosquitoes will be collected in the area after the fogging is complete. If post-treatment mosquito samples are carrying West Nile Virus, the District may fog the area again. Please see the news release for more information.
