City of Slayton

June 19, 2013

prepares for 2013 mosquito season
From Josh Malchow, City Clerk/Administrator, City of Slayton

The City of Slayton will be implementing the second year of its mosquito population reduction efforts this summer. The goal of the program is to reduce the number of nuisance mosquitoes. Along with being a nuisance, some mosquitoes can be the transmitter of several serious diseases.

The focus of the program will be to minimize active adult mosquitoes. As the truck moves about Slayton neighborhoods using the ultra-low volume sprayer mounted in the back, a light visible fog will move through the area. The fog will not cause visibility problems. Common-sense precautions should be taken, including keeping away from the spray vehicle and out of the fog cloud. The majority of the spraying will be done from dusk to midnight.
