Mosquito Control

 

The City of Ashland will be treating for mosquitos throughout the entire City. Insecticide will be applied throughout each of the Wards and will also include the areas of Brookside Park, Brookside West Park, Cahn Grove Park, Community Soccer Stadium, Spring Run Park on 16th Street, Emmons Field, Miller Field, Evergreen Park, and Davis Road Parks utilizing the services of an area contractor. 

The mosquito control application uses a combination of fogging and spraying, depending on the size of the area. The larger parks will utilize fogging around the perimeter of the parks, the ballfields, and the tree lines with minimum impact to the fields and grass areas. The city streets and smaller parks will be sprayed or fogged. To find out more about the insecticide used, please see the material safety data sheet for the insecticide below.

 

Schedule

Mosquito Traps
- Set around the City and County of Ashland, the traps allow the Health Dept. to monitor the types of mosquitoes in our area and the diseases which they are currently carrying. 


Dunks
- Dunks are placed in standing bodies of water where they slowly release a bacterium which is eaten by the mosquito larvae. The dunks last about 30 days in the water but have long-term effects as they kill mosquitoes in their developmental stages.
