Mosquito & Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Mosquito Control

Larval control operations were started in late April with pretreatment options for the upcoming 2023 season. With warmer and wetter weather moving in, larval control will step up to daily operations. Adult control operations have started for the perimeters of town on nights when adult mosquito trap counts and activity show a necessity. During mosquito season fogging will take place Sunday through Thursday, when weather allows, on a rotation between our three zones, North, South/APO, and West. If activity is only on the edges of town the rotation will function as normal but the operations will be scaled to the perimeter zones. For more information on the zones please check out our map on the Hotline tab
