Mosquito Fogging Scheduled for ​Oasis @ Magic Ranch Subdivision in San Tan Valley


Pinal County Public Health Services District (PCPHSD) Environmental Health Division will conduct mosquito fogging in San Tan Valley starting Thursday, August 19, 2021, running through Saturday, August 21, 2021, from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. each night.

The Oasis @ Magic Ranch Subdivision and the adjacent nearby acreage properties area will be fogged on all three days. 

The pesticide that will be used during fogging is called Anvil 2+2. It is a pre-mixed, ready-to-use product that contains two active ingredients: Sumithrin (2%) and piperonyl butoxide (2%). Sumithrin is a man-made version of a natural pesticide found in chrysanthemum flowers while Piperonyl butoxide helps Sumithrin work more effectively against mosquitoes. Anvil 2+2 is registered with the U.S. EPA and is effective against mosquitoes that carry West Nile Virus.

There are several things that residents can do to reduce exposure during fogging:
  • Close all windows and doors. Air conditioners can still be operated, but if they have vents to bring in outside air, they should be closed. Weather permitting, turn off evaporative coolers
  • Stay inside your home
  • If possible, bring pets inside
  • Thirty minutes after the end of the scheduled fogging each night, you may resume normal activities

County health officials urge all county residents to "Fight the Bite" and follow these simple personal precautions to avoid mosquitoes and the diseases they may carry:

  • Avoid outside activity between dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active
  • If you must be outdoors when mosquitoes are active, wear lightweight clothing that covers your arms and legs and use an insect repellent containing an EPA registered active ingredient such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), para-menthane-diol (PMD), or 2-undecanone. Always follow the directions on the label
  • When using sunscreen, always apply the sunscreen before you apply the insect repellent
  • Make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens and remain closed. Repair or replace screens that have tears or holes in them
  • Eliminate mosquito-breeding sites around the home by removing standing water in potted plants, tires, birdbaths, and other containers where water may collect
  • Ensure that swimming pools and decorative water features are properly maintained
  • Change water in flowerpots, birdbaths, and pet watering bowls located outdoors at least twice per week

If you would like information on mosquito prevention and control, or to file a complaint, visit the Pinal County Environmental Health Services webpage at /pinal.gov/ehs, or call 520-866-6200.

Watch the video below to learn about how Pinal County's Vector Control Program Monitors Mosquitoes & West Nile Virus risk.

West Nile Virus is transmitted to humans and animals through the bite of an infected mosquito. West Nile virus can cause severe illness in people and horses, although not everyone that is infected will develop symptoms. People of all ages can be affected, however, the elderly may be more prone to serious illness.
