<br /> The City of Renton to Apply Mosquito Control Pesticides
<br /> The City of Renton may use mosquito larvicides and adulticides to help control
<br /> mosquitoes in accordance with the Washington State Department of Ecology's Aquatic
<br /> Mosquito Control General Permit. The larvicide, Vectol-ex, is made of a natural
<br /> bacterium, the active ingredient being Bacillus sphaericus 2362, Serotype H5a5b, strain
<br /> ABTS 1743. The adulticide, Aqualuer 20-208, contains active ingredients Permethrin and
<br /> Piperonyl Butoxide. Treatments may occur between June 10, 2019 and September 30,
<br /> 2019. Larvicide treatment will generally occur in stormwater facilities and catch basins
<br /> owned or maintained by the City. Adulticide treatment areas are generally located in
<br /> upland areas east of SR-167 and west of Lake Avenue South/Talbot Road South between
<br /> the 3900 block of Talbot Road South to the south and 1-405 to the north, within the City
<br /> of Renton, Washington. Information about the larvicides, adulticides, and a map of the
<br /> specific locations are available at https://www.rentonwa.gov/mosquitoabatement.
