Asian Tiger Mosquito(Wenatchee, WA) Now that flooding from high river flows has receded, Chelan PUD crews will apply a larvicide Tuesday, July 17, to help reduce mosquitoes in the Horan Natural Area that links Confluence State Park and Wenatchee’s Walla Walla Point Park.

This year’s application was delayed by high water that covered parts of the trail through the wildlife area. PUD Parks Superintendent Ryan Baker said crews will use the same mosquito control that has proved effective in the last three years. The pellets are safe for use near humans, pets and wildlife.

PUD Fish and Wildlife employees will use a small boat to apply the pellets to ponds in the wildlife area starting at 8 a.m. on Tuesday and should be done by 10 a.m., Baker said. Follow-up applications are planned, but not yet scheduled.

“We recognize the mosquitoes are particularly bad this year and have received many phone calls from concerned trail users,” Baker said.

He is also working with state Parks staff to help control mosquitoes in Confluence State Park, which is owned the PUD and operated by the state. High flows flooded the group camping area at the popular state park just north of Wenatchee and left puddles in low-lying areas that serve as breeding grounds for the biting insects. Mosquito control will be scheduled as soon as permits are secured, Baker said.
