WHEN and WHERE DO WE SPRAY?
Using the best practice system of integrated pest management, the decision of when and where to spray is based on our mosquito surveillance program. SCPH does not have a predetermined spray schedule. Factors that may result in an evening mosquito control application include:
- Mosquitoes testing positive for WNV that were caught in mosquito traps
- A spike in the number of Culex species (carriers of WNV) caught in mosquito traps
- Severe weather conditions such as flooding dictate the need for additional adulticiding.
Spraying will begin at approximately 8:30 p.m. and continue until completed. In the event of bad weather, the spray schedule may be modified. An updated schedule will be available by noon on the following day by calling (330) 926-5667.
