Thanks to all who came out on October 30 for the fall clean up. Efforts focused on areas by the post office, Bezazian library, and the intersection of Argyle & Broadway.
Chicago Department of Public Health will be spraying for mosquitoes within NUNA boundaries as part of their efforts to combat West Nile Virus.
According to the 47th Ward Alderman’s office:
“The material being used to control the adult mosquitoes, Zenivex™, is approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has been widely applied to control mosquitoes in outdoor residential and recreational areas across the city. The spray will be applied by licensed mosquito abatement technicians from Vector Disease Control International, a leader in the mosquito control industry. Guiding the crews through the streets will be supervisors from the Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation.
In addition to the city’s aggressive mosquito abatement and prevention efforts, CDPH continues to remind residents to take simple precautions to protect themselves against mosquitoes that may carry the virus, including:
- Use insect repellent that contains DEET, Picaridin or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus.
- Eliminate standing water. This includes emptying water from flowerpots, gutters, pool covers, pet water dishes and birdbaths regularly.
- Keep grass and weeds short to eliminate hiding places for adult mosquitoes.
- When outside between dusk and dawn, wear loose-fitting, light colored clothing including long pants, long sleeve shirts, socks and shoes.
- Check that all screens, windows and doors are tight-fitting and free of holes and tears.
- Check on neighbors regularly who may need additional assistance, including the elderly.
Weather permitting, the spraying will begin at dusk and continue through the night until approximately 1:00am, with licensed mosquito abatement technicians in trucks dispensing an ultra-low-volume spray. Each year, CDPH conducts a comprehensive mosquito surveillance, prevention and control program to protect residents from West Nile virus and other diseases spread by mosquitoes.

The terrible potholes on the eastern end of Argyle were fixed June 23! Much nicer for two- and four-wheeled traffic. We encourage NUNA residents to report potholes and other necessary repairs to 311.
