Mosquito & Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

Mosquito Control

Currently, the risk of West Nile Virus (WNv) infection is rated at level 0 (No Risk). Larval control operations are set to begin in early april as standing water will start producing larval mosquito habitat as it warms. 

During the 2017 season surveillance crews tested 112 mosquito pools for WNv. Of those 112 tested pools 3 mosquito pools, 1 Swainson's hawk, and 1 Crow tested Positive for WNv. Call 721-5056 or visit for more information.

The schedule is available at approximately 4pm daily. Spraying information is also available on the City’s website.
