Spraying will be conducted from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m., weather permitting. A positive mosquito trap pool for the West Nile Virus was reported by the County in this area. See below for a link to a map outlining the area to be sprayed.

Residents living near this area are encouraged to remain indoors and bring their pets inside during spraying. City Staff will continue to monitor areas where mosquito breeding is mostly like to occur. To prevent the spread of mosquitos, residents should remove all areas of standing water and report all pools that are not well maintained and abandoned homes where mosquitos are likely to breed to the Health and Code Enforcement Department. Everyone should continue to protect themselves against the West Nile Virus by using insect repellent containing DEET.
