West Nile Virus

We can help prevent the population of Culex Tarsalis Mosquitoes by reducing standing water which is most beneficial from June until September. This can be done by:
  • Cleaning & emptying eavestroughs, bird baths and other items that might collect water;
  • Ensuring rain barrels are covered with mosquito screening or are tightly sealed around the downspout; and
  • Clearing yards of old tires or other debris that collect water. 
More information about West Nile virus is available on the Manitoba Health website at
The LUD of Elkhorn and R.M. of Wallace-Woodworth help to prevent the spread of West Nile virus by larvaciding around the Village boundaries.
If you have any questions in regards to this, please contact:
