Fort Collins Mosquito Spraying Trucks Equipped With GPS – Track Progress Live Online
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could find out where they are spraying for mosquitoes when they are doing it? The City of Fort Collins has equipped Colorado Mosquito Control trucks with GPS systems so that residents can track their locations during mosquito spraying. This is in direct response to residents asking for more specific information about when trucks will be spraying in their neighborhoods.

The City of Fort Collins sprayed for adult mosquitoes beginning at dusk last night. Spraying will be done again tonight, then on Aug. 19th & 20th. This is a map of where the truck-based fogging will take place.
Spraying will begin at dusk 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.
