When are spraying insecticides considered?

Our mission is to protect the community from mosquito-borne diseases. When mosquito populations increase, the risk of local transmission is higher. Control applications are assessed based on the "Mosquito-Borne Virus Surveillance and Emergency Response Plan." This ensures that we treat when there is increased disease risk but not when the risk is low.

Truck-mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control applications involve emitting a fine mist to target flying adult mosquitoes.

Aerial control is an important tool for mosquito control. It helps reduce mosquito populations in areas that are hard to reach and allows us to knock down new generations of the mosquito quickly to prevent additional spikes in the mosquito population.

All control products used by the District are registered by the Environmental Protection Agency for the purpose of controlling mosquitoes and protecting public health. The products are applied according to label instructions by trained and certified technicians.
