Mosquito Spraying

Aerial Mosquito Spraying is scheduled for Tuesday, July 2nd, between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. When you hear the plane overhead, it is a good idea to remain inside while the application is taking place. In the event the weather conditions are not favorable for spraying, the application will take place on the 3rd.

The City of Devils Lake uses 2 trucks to spray for mosquitoes when conditions require. In order to spray, wind speed cannot be greater than 10 mph and temperature at least 55 degrees F. Aerial spraying for mosquitoes will be done for the 4th of July and Labor Day holidays. The City uses larvicide briquettes and granules at breeding sites to help prevent mosquito hatches. Help control mosquitoes and don’t let YOUR yard become a breeding site. Get rid of anything that holds standing water.
