MOSQUITO SPRAYING TONIGHT 8/8/22

Clarke will be performing a Village wide adult mosquito control application this evening, August 8th, 2022, weather conditions permitting, based on collections of West Nile Virus positive mosquito collections.

Please do your part to help eliminate mosquitos.

  • Remove hiding spaces for mosquitos (tall grass, weeds, compost piles, overgrown vegetation, lawn furniture)
  • Clear standing water. Check in flower pots, wheelbarrows, tires, bird baths (change water frequently), buckets, grill covers, tarps, trash can lids, and gutters.
  • Add mosquito repelling plants to your landscape (citronella, bee balm, lavender, catnip, marigolds, peppermint)

Yellow Flag – Druce Lake

Blue green algae has been spotted in Druce Lake. While the level of toxins is not known at the time, it is always better to use caution when participating in water activities. Not all algae is toxic and levels will not be known until testing is completed by the state labs.

The Lake County Health Department conducted a plant tour for residents this past Thursday. She explained that many lakes are experiencing algae blooms at this time. Warmer temperatures are a contributing factor so algae blooms are common at this time of the summer. Children and pets are most vulnerable because they ingest water. Blooms can appear and disappear quickly so the motto for the LCHD is “When In Doubt, Stay Out”.
