2019 Spraying Has Ended

Mosquito_low_sm

Weekly spraying has ended for the 2019 season. Mosquito populations, especially those Culex mosquitoes that carry the West Nile Virus, have decreased significantly due to the cooler temperatures.

The risk of West Nile Virus is now low, but not non-existent. Residents are encouraged to continue to practice the 4D's of prevention, as shown on this webpage.


Mosquito Control Strategy

The City of Longmont contracts with Vector Disease Control International (VDCI) to implement an Integrated Pest Management Program to combat mosquitoes that might carry the West Nile Virus. The 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.

Trapping

See weekly trap reports from VDCI >

If Needed Spray Areas

VDCI maintains a map that displays typical mosquito "hotspots" around Longmont. When local spraying is needed, it will be concentrated to specific, predetermined areas. Spraying typically occurs on Thursday nights (weather permitting).

Request Spray Notification or Shutoff

VDCI maintains a database of Longmont residents that have made notification or shutoff requests for their property if spraying is scheduled. There are three options:

  1. Call Notification Only - VDCI will phone you before spraying in your neighborhood
  2. Address Shuffoff Only - VDCI will shutoff the spray machine while driving past your property
  3. Notification & Shutoff - VDCI will phone you before spraying in your neighborhood and shutoff the spray machine while driving past your property

Please contact VDCI to make a notification or shutoff request (online form available on their webpage).

City Email News

The City offers an eNotification system that provides residents with up-to-date information on a variety of topics including West Nile Virus. Visit the eNotification subscription page now to sign-up and choose the type of news you would like to receive.
