Mr. Allen – The San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District is responsible for the spraying over Menlo Park yesterday (Infor_at_(domainremoved)

Dear Mayor and City Council Members,

This note is to let you know that the District is organizing a public forum where our residents can have all of their questions and concerns addressed.

The District will also invite a representative from Central Life Science, the company that makes Zenivex, the compound that was sprayed.

Know that the District is working long hours, relentlessly, trying to eradicate these mosquitoes from our city and from our county. These are dangerous vectors that can infect humans and other animals with West Nile Virus. This is a serious threat and the district is working very hard trying to keep our community safe.

Tomorrow (MONDAY), a press release will be issued with more details. I will make sure you and all the concerned residents get a copy.

In the meantime, continue to direct phone calls to the district (PH:(650) 344 – 8592). Hundreds of phone calls were addressed today, most of them wanting to be reassured and educated about the process and the chemicals used.

Why were we not informed ahead of time about this fogging???
And what specific pesticides are been used? What are the side effects?

I hope to receive a reply to this important issue.

Thanks so much,


5 yr resident
