Areas north of Mulberry will be sprayed on Wednesday the 14th and Monday the 19th, areas south of Mulberry will be sprayed on Thursday the 15th and Tuesday the 20th. Click here to see a map of the spray zones.

Those might be good times to NOT go out for a dusk-time run or bike ride.

From the City of Fort Collins:

In accordance with the City’s West Nile Virus Management Policy, the City of Fort Collins will spray for adult mosquitoes beginning at dusk on Aug. 14-15 and Aug. 19-20. Weather permitting, truck-based fogging will take place:

  • North of Mulberry Street – Wednesday, Aug. 14 & Monday, Aug. 19
  • South of Mulberry Street – Thursday, Aug. 15 & Tuesday, Aug. 20

The City’s contractor, Colorado Mosquito Control, will use a permethrin-based product to be applied in a fine mist. Spraying will begin at dusk according to the schedule above, and will continue until 2 a.m. the following morning for each application. To minimize pesticide exposure, residents should stay indoors and keep doors and windows closed for 30 to 60 minutes after spraying occurs. It’s recommended that residents bring pets indoors as well. Residents can further minimize pesticide exposure by covering organic gardens, ponds, and water features with a sheet or tarp.
