- Mosquito personnel will then contact you to visit the sight, do surveillance* and take action if appropriate. This procedure may take several days.
*Surveillance may consist of light traps, wet area assessment, larva counts or suggestions on what you can do to reduce the problem. If needed, an application of ultra low volume insecticide may be done at that time.
Note: If you are not home at the time of the visit, an action report will be left.
Enrollment commences annually in April and continues through the spraying season. Spraying usually begins in late May or early June and continues through September. Spraying may continue into October if conditions warrant.
