Adulticide fogging has ended for 2015:

The number of mosquitoes that carry the West Nile Virus is decreasing, prompting the City of Longmont to end it's adulticide spraying program for 2015.

However, residents are urged to remain vigilant for the rest of the summer and early fall. An easy way to protect yourself against mosquitoes that might carry the West Nile virus is to remember the 4Ds of protection.

Longmont's mosquito control 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, known as larviciding, also minimizes fogging to kill the adult, airborne bugs. Longmont will continue its larviciding program for the next several weeks.


Mosquito Control Strategy

The City of Longmont has contracted with Colorado Mosquito Control 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.
