August 1, 2018

Longmont Times-Call

Vector Disease Control International, Longmont’s mosquito control contractor, will be spraying to kill mosquitoes in six areas of the city on Thursday night, weather permitting.

That “adulticide fogging,” or pesticide spraying, is done whenever West Nile virus-positive mosquitoes have been discovered in Larimer, Boulder or Weld counties, and when Longmont mosquito traps exceed 100 mosquitoes.

Longmont areas scheduled for spraying on Thursday night include the Jim Hamm Nature Area; Sandstone Ranch; the Union Reservoir area, the Great Western Drive-Mill Village area; the Grandview Meadows Drive-Clover Basin Drive-Nelson Road area, and the Stoney Ridge-Alpine Elementary School area.

Information about steps to prevent getting infected with the mosquito-borne disease, along with the boundaries of the areas to be sprayed, can be found on the city’s West Nile virus mosquito control web page, tinyurl.com/yakpdzzb.
