Mosquito Spraying to Start June 12

Starting June 12, and only if mosquito capture measurements indicate the need, our neighborhood will be sprayed for mosquito control purposes on Thursday nights between 7 p.m. and 2:30 a.m.

Although the ultra-low volume spray has been found to be effective in controlling the Asian Tiger Mosquito, carrier of the deadly West Nile virus, it has also been judged by the Maryland Department of Agriculture as harmless to humans. 

That said, common sense dictates that it is always wise to avoid or at least limit contact with any chemical pesticides, so if you're planning a barbecue outdoors please consider a night other than Thursday.

And if you're walking your dog and see the spray truck approaching, consider finding another path for a while. 

Also consider ridding your property of any standing water that could also breed these pests. Or if you can't, consider a mosquito dunk--they're only a dollar-a-pop online with free shipping, according to Dave Delia. Click here.

If you have any questions, call Dave Delia at 443-534-7229 (c) or 410-268-8622 (h).
