Forshaga had it's 1st mosquito treatment

After our team observed flooding and hatching last week. This week, after a thorough inspection throughout the area, we conducted our first control treatment in the area. On Tuesday, July 14th 154 hectares were treated by helicopter. Through physical and digital follow up we see that the treatments were successful. There remains some risk of hatching in areas where we do not have permission from landowners but otherwise, local residents should not be negatively impacted by the floodwater mosquitoes.
