2023 Weekly Spray Truck Schedule
The county is fortunate to have five (5) mosquito Spray Trucks available this year. This will help us to cover more areas more often. To accomplish this, data is collected in many different ways such as:
- Checking various types of mosquito traps that are spread around the county
- Conducting surveillance
- Receiving information from trusted observers
- Relying on request tips from citizens
The data collected is processed and evaluated to help Mosquito Control staff schedule the Spray Truck Routes each week. The following schedule is posted for the current week. Some communities are split into several routes; so, select the route on the schedule to see a map of the area that is covered on that route.
