Mosquito Spraying

Mosquito Population Reduction Program

City of Hutchinson Prepares for 2021 Mosquito Season

The City of Hutchinson will again be implementing 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 transmitters 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.

 

All dates are subject to change without notice.

Tentative Dates

Larval treatment – around May 11
Light Trap Set Up – around May 24

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. Trucks are equipped with GPS tracking devices and variable flow equipment allowing them to drive around 2 to 25 mph keeping the correct dosage.

The following dates are proposed dates of treatment for
Wednesday nights, weather permitting.

Treatments may be extended if deemed necessary by City Officials.

Wednesday nights…May 26, June 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14, 21

Possible additional Wednesday nights…July 28, August 4, 18
