Mosquito Spraying Continues in Specific Areas

The City of Longmont and its contractor Colorado Mosquito Control (CMC) continue to implement an "integrated pest management program" to combat mosquitoes that might carry the West Nile Virus. This program focuses on first attacking mosquitoes in their larval stage before they become airborne. This is the best method since it eliminates mosquitoes before they hatch. However, some localized spraying is still necessary. The City of Longmont Spray Schedule appears every Tuesday in the Longmont Times-Call and on the City's website.
