CORINTH SEES FEWER MOSQUITOES TESTING POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE THIS YEAR

The first season with the City's new Mosquito Abatement Policy in place has proven to be a success. In January, Corinth City Council granted Vector Disease Control with a contract to manage the mosquito population in order to reduce the risk of West Nile within the community.

The company has been using an aggressive and scientific approach to treat ponds, creeks, and marshy areas throughout the City. As a result, there has been a 50% decrease in the number of positive tests this year as compared to the 2015 season.

“When the City Council passed the Mosquito Abatement Policy, we had no idea what the outcome was going to be. When we discussed this, we were all in agreement that we wanted what was best for the citizens of Corinth with a proactive, preventive process in place rather than a reactionary policy,” said Mayor Bill Heidemann. “With the results that have been recorded during this mosquito season, I feel the decision of the Council was the best for the citizens of Corinth.”

Information about West Nile Virus, how to protect you and your family from mosquito bites, and what you can do to prevent breeding grounds can be found on the City's West Nile website.
