Public Notice for Mosquito Spraying PDF Print E-mail

Starting May 2017 thru September 2017

mesquito

The City of Trinidad will perform periodic spraying for mosquitos as deemed necessary. Mosquito spraying will not occur during rain or if the wind speed is 10 mph or greater.

Pesticide being used: BIOMIST 4+4 ULV

How safe is it?

Pesticides that are used for mosquito control have been judged by the EPA not to pose an unreasonable risk to human health. Spraying is scheduled in the evening to limit exposure to people who may wish to avoid contact with the pesticide used to control mosquito populations.

Sprayings will begin around 8:30pm thru 11:30pm.

People with conditions such as asthma and other respiratory conditions can consider staying indoors because spraying may worsen or aggravate these conditions.

Extra precautions during spraying:

1. Remain indoors with children and pets and cover any ornamental fish ponds, beehives or organic gardens. Stay indoors for at least an hour after spraying has concluded.
2. Close windows and doors, and turn off window unit air conditioners or set to recirculate indoor air only
3. Drive cautiously around truck spaying pesticide
