Fumigation for Mosquitos

The City has started spraying for mosquitos and will continue to spray until November. Please keep in mind that we have a small window of opportunity to work with. The key factor in spraying is the weather conditions, including wind. The wind speed needs to be between 10 mph and 15 mph, pesticide does not drift to target area with too low or too high wind speed – the mosquito goes into hiding and pesticide does not find target. Weather conditions are checked daily for spraying applications. As soon as wind speeds are acceptable, Public Works Dept resumes spraying. Spraying route will continue accordingly throughout the rest of the season. Please also drain any containers that hold water in your yard to help prevent mosquito breeding. If you have any questions please contact the Public Works dept at 787-8321.
