Aug. 10, 2016 - City crews will conduct truck-mounted, ultra-low volume spraying for mosquitoes this evening, weather permitting, in the Briarfield, Aberdeen Gardens, Rip Rap Road and Cherry Acres area.

Spraying is done around dusk to minimize impact on beneficial insects. Citizens can help reduce the mosquito population by dumping containers of standing water or adding bio-control larvicides to standing water. Asian tiger mosquitoes are most active during the day and stay close to their breeding grounds.

A mosquito spray hotline is available at 757-727-8415, and residents can call 311 (727-8311 from a cell phone) to request that an area be sprayed. Public Works' Environmental Services crews monitor the mosquito population and test for diseases they may carry.
