  • Weather Conditions Affect Mosquito Spraying

    The City has received several phone calls concerning the number of mosquitos this year in spite of the spraying.     APM has started the mosquito spraying but weather conditions need to be right in order for spraying to be effective.  The minimum parameters for truck fogging are wind speed less than 10 mph, temperature above 55*F and not raining at the time of application. The inability to meet these weather conditions has made truck fogging very sporadic thus far this year.  APM will be making every effort to handle the mosquito situation.  If you have questions or concerns, please call APM's toll free number 877 276-4714.
