Mosquito Spraying

MOSQUITO POPULATION REDUCTION PROGRAM

 

Due to the continued cooler temperatures, mosquito spraying has been cancelled for Wednesday, May 31st. 

City of Hutchinson Prepares for 2017 Mosquito Season

The City of Hutchinson will be implementing the twelfth year of its mosquito population reduction efforts this year. The goal of the program is to reduce the number of nuisance mosquitoes. Along with being a nuisance, some mosquitoes can be the transmitter of several serious diseases.

The company chosen to help maintain the mosquito control program is Clarke Mosquito Control, Clearwater, MN. They encourage any residents who may have questions, to call them toll free at (800) 240-4262.

Larval Treatment & Light Trap Set ~ Early May

The focus of the adulticide program will again be to minimize active adult mosquitoes. As trucks move about the neighborhoods using ultra-low volume sprayers mounted in the back, a light visible fog will move through the area.  The fog will not cause visibility problems.  Common-sense precautions should be taken, including keeping away from the spray vehicles and out of the fog cloud. The majority of the spraying will be done from dusk to midnight or early morning before dawn.

The following dates are proposed dates of treatment. Treatments are proposed for Wednesday nights, if weather permits. Treatments may be extended if deemed necessary by City Officials.
