When we receive fogging requests from residents in our district we will place their address on a fogging list for that night if possible. We also will initiate fogging in the area of West Nile positive adult mosquitoes identified through our adult traps to prevent community transmission.
AMCD has reduced the need to fog dramatically by focusing on larval control efforts first. There are still times that fogging is necessary and we ensure we use the lowest amount of active product that will control flying mosquitoes.
We only fog from 8:00 PM to 1:00 AM when bees are safe inside their hive and adult mosquitoes are the most active. We even have an active bee colony right behind our shop that has thrived for years without incident. We respect the requests of the residents in our district who want to opt out of aerial application being performed on their property.
