We are spraying for mosquitoes in full force during appropriate seasons. If you do not see us, it’s because we are spraying between 9 pm & 4 am daily as this is the most effective time to achieve a higher kill rate. Please use mosquito dunks in standing water on your own property. They are available at feed stores, Lowe’s & Home Depot.
Please see our interactive map below of the Precinct 4 spraying zones. You can click on the zone in which you live to see the date last sprayed or the date your area is scheduled to be sprayed. Please note, we cannot spray if it is raining but we will keep data updated if to give you accurate information.
What you can do:
Wear repellent — every time you go outside. 75% of those who contract West Nile never wear repellent.
Eliminate standing water — follow the water! Mosquitoes need standing water in order to lay eggs. Check your yard for anything that holds water and dump it out. Mosquitoes can grow in something as small as a bottle cap!
Treat where you can’t drain — use products containing BT or other larvicides to treat standing water you can’t eliminate such as birdbaths, meter boxes or French drains.
