Mosquito Control Activity Schedule

The Health Department will conduct truck-mounted spraying (adulticiding) of EPA-approved insecticides, weather permitting*, in portions of specific ZIP codes according to the following schedule:

Week of October 16

Monday, October 16 - Spray canceled due to low temperatures.
Tuesday, October 17 - Spray canceled due to low temperatures.
Wednesday, October 18 - 38018, 38120, 38128, 38133, 38134, 38135
Thursday, October 19 - 38103, 38107, 38108, 38122, 38127

* To ensure the insecticide is most effective, the scheduled spraying will be canceled if any of the following weather conditions are present for the majority of the schedule spray time:

  • Greater than a 65% chance of rain
  • Wind speeds 11mph or greater
  • Temperature less than 60 degrees Fahrenheit  

Truck mounted spraying only effectively kills adult mosquitoes that are currently flying at the time the insecticide is released. Because of this, residents are highly encouraged to be vigilant as it relates to controlling mosquito populations around their homes and businesses. Citizens are encouraged to practice the 4 D’s:

  • DEFEND yourself by using insect repellent with DEET. Follow label instructions.
  • DRESS in long sleeves and pants. Wear loose and light colored clothing when outdoors.
  • DUSK/DAWN is the time when mosquitoes are most active. Stay indoors.
  • DRAIN standing water and install or repair window screens.

If you would like to request an inspection of your property, or the property you believe to be a problem, please call 901-222-9715.
