NOTICE TO RESIDENTS
The Bucks County West Nile Virus Prevention Program will conduct an ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control operation to reduce high populations of mosquitoes capable of transmitting West Nile Virus Wednesday, August , 21 2019 in the Warminster Heights section of Warminster.
The treatments will be administered via truck-mounted equipment, spraying mosquito habitats in residential and park locations. Trucks used in the spray are identified with Bucks County seal logos located on the doors. The equipment dispenses Biomist or Duet at a rate of 0.75 ounces per acre. This product is designed to provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations. The application material has a very low toxicity profile to mammals and will have negligible impact to non-target insects and the environment. The spray will begin at dusk.
Certain mosquito species carry the West Nile virus, which can cause humans to contract West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, all residents in areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of contracting West Nile encephalitis.
Weather conditions and other unexpected events could delay or cancel this spray operation. If conditions do not allow application on August 21st, 2019, subsequently Thursday evening, August 22, 2019 will serve as the back-up spray date.

Warminster Heights was built, in 1943, to serve as civilian housing for the Brewster Aeronautical Corporation, before becoming the Naval Air Warfare Center, end eventually Lacey Park. Lacey Park owes its name to a Revolutionary War officer who fought at the Battle of Crooked Billet, in neighboring Hatboro, PA. The community changed its name to Warminster Heights in the 1960’s, and when it eventually gained ownership from the Redevelopment Authority of Bucks County, in 1986, its name changed to Warminster Heights Home Ownership Association, Inc. (WHHOA). Since then, WHHOA has worked to improve and build the community into what it is today.
