The City sprays for mosquitoes Monday - Thursday during the mosquito season. The City uses an EPA approved application.
Ditch & Sewer Treatments In addition to mosquito spraying, the City treats drainage ditches and the storm sewer system (areas of standing water) with Environmental Protection Agency - approved Altosid briquets. This is the most effective approach in reducing the mosquito population by killing the mosquito larvae before it has the opportunity to become an adult.
