July 14, 2023 – Mosquito Safety, Summit Envisions Learning Series, UDOT Public Input & Jana Kramer in Concert

Today, we cover:

  • Mosquito Safety Information from the Summit County Health Department
  • Summit Envisions Learning Series
  • Public Input Opportunity for the State’s Long Range Transportation Plan
  • Jana Kramer in Concert


As a result of increased moisture this winter and spring, Summit County has seen an unwelcome increase in mosquito populations. The Summit County Mosquito Abatement team has partnered with Vector Disease Control Inc. to implement an efficient technique to mosquito abatement using cutting-edge drone technology.  The Mosquito Abatement team disperses traps throughout Summit County to test for potential infections. In Summit County, no mosquitoes have been reported to have the West Nile virus in over 10 years.

Although there have been no reported case of West Nile  in our county, it’s still important to reduce your risk for mosquito bites. Dispose or drain standing water in your yard and protect yourself with  long-sleeved clothing and various types of EPA registered insect repellents that contain DEET, picaridin or oil of eucalyptus when outdoors. If you experience symptoms like fever, body aches, or swelling beyond the bite site, consult a healthcare professional.
