Mosquito Spraying Discontinued

The City of Longmont, in consultation with the Boulder County Public Health, is discontinuing Mosquito Spraying for the remainder of the year.

Trapping has shown a reduction in the mosquito population. In addition, most eggs have likely been washed to the east via flood waters and future cold weather will impact their reproduction and viability.

UPDATE: However, residents should continue to practice the 4 D's  to protect themselves from the risk of West Nile Virus.

Below is a picture of the life cycle from Purdue University.

Colorado Mosquito Control has an informative link for mosquitoes in our area.
