While the mosquito population is currently low during this low-water year, the Owens Valley Mosquito Abatement Program crew is daily treating pastures and lake areas in preparation for the peak August/September mosquito season.
OVMAP Manager Chris Wickham said the crew has been applying larvicides to pasture areas adjacent to Bishop, Big Pine, Lone Pine and Independence as well as in the Owens Lake area near Keeler since March.
â€śAnywhere we find mosquitoes breeding near human populations is our highest priority,â€ť he said.

It looked like another one of those Pitch Slap games: off to a strong start, then fade to another notch in the lost column.
This time Pitch was matched up with Reds, who might not have a great win/loss record, but come with a dugout full of strong athletes and power hitters. Pitch took the early advantage, then the Reds powered back to a 5-14 lead going into the open sixth inning. Pitch had one last shot at pulling off a come-from-behind; all they needed was 10 runs and theyâ€™d go 5-5 in league action. Yeah, like all anybody needs is one winning lottery ticket.
