Mosquito Control Strategy

The City of Longmont has contracted with Colorado Mosquito Control (CMC) 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. This method also minimizes fogging to kill the adult, airborne bugs. However, some localized spraying might be necessary.

Fight the BiteSpray Schedule

Colorado Mosquito Control evaluates mosquito traps every Sunday, and notifies the City on Monday night with a localized spray schedule. When spraying is required, the public will be notified on Tuesday via the Times-Call, this web page, Twitter, Facebook and the City's e-Alert email system (subscribe to the "West Nile" list). Spraying occurs on Wednesday nights (weather permitting).

The Boulder County Mosquito Control District spray schedule is published every Tuesday in the Boulder Daily Camera and Longmont Times-Call. The City of Longmont Spray Schedule appears every Tuesday in the Longmont Times-Call in conjunction with the Boulder County Mosquito Control Program ad.
