2019 Mosquito Management Program

Thursday, August 22, 2019

Mosquito Larva Control (Larvacide) Larvicide operations are conducted throughout the city to attack the mosquito at the weakest point in its life cycle and to prevent adult emergence. As larval surveys are performed. Identified sites are treated throughout the mosquito season. Treatment comes in the form of 180-day Larval Briquets placed in Town known areas of stagnant/standing water. Depending on the season, it may also be necessary to later treat the same area with an additional 45-day Briquet. The purpose of larvicide is to kill the mosquito before it becomes an adult. Adult Controlled Spraying (Adulticide) Adulticide operations are conducted by using ultra-low-volume (ULV) ground equipment to spray the affected area, during evening hours, to reduce the adult mosquito population. The application will cover the entire Town every Thursday, with weather permitting.
