This year, as in past years the Public Works Department will manage the Village's Mosquito Abatement Program. Employees have been licensed through the Illinois Department of Agriculture to perform the application.
Residential spraying will be limited only to periods of excessive annoyance. Storm drains will be treated regularly because control of larvae is critical to the success of any mosquito abatement program.
For more information, contact the Public Works Department at 630-257-2532. Sign up to receive notification via Stay Informed.
How You Can Help
- Promptly remove standing water from all pots, containers, and tire swings around the yard. Mosquitoes can develop in only five days.
- Keep weeds and grass mowed. Keep gutters free of leaves and debris so water runs freely. Change the water in bird baths once a week.
- Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas, and hot tubs regularly. Drain water from pool covers.
- Take all recommended precautions to avoid mosquito bites. Use DEET insect repellent when outdoors.
