Borough Getting Second Round of Mosquito Treatment
The Chesco Health Department will spray the northside on Wednesday night.
The Chester County Health Department will conduct a second round of mosquito control treatment in the borough Wednesday night, this time on the northside of Phoenixville.
The treatment will be carried out on September 12 from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The treatment, which entails the administration of 1.5 ounces of Permanone RTU—a common insecticide—per acre, will be executed with truck-mounted equipment.
According to a release from the borough, the application materials pose a very low toxicity risk to mammals and are safe for the environment.
This spray is being conducted to cover areas that were not sprayed during the previous treatment in the Phoenixville area on September 6.
