CHI Saint Joseph Health work on Habitat Home Build
Teams from CHI Saint Joseph Health and Lex18 began work on a Lexington Habitat for Humanity home on Betty Hope Lane.

Bug Bites
The health department has surveyed Lexington neighborhoods that will identify and treat large areas of standing water that serves as a prime location for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Luke Mathis, Environmental Health and Preparedness team leader at LFCHD says “Targeting immature mosquitoes is a more effective control strategy as it stops mosquitoes from developing into adults that can feed on humans and transmit mosquito-borne diseases like Zika and West Nile.” For spraying, the health department uses Duet which is an EPA-approved agent that features a component that stimulates resting mosquitoes in trees and foliage. This will cause them to fly in the air and into the mosquito-killing agent spray.
