Mosquito Control Spraying for the Sioux Falls Region Monday Night

MosquitoIf weather conditions permit, the City of Sioux Falls Health Department will be conducting spraying efforts for mosquitoes in targeted areas of Sioux Falls on Monday, August 19, 2013.

A map on the City’s website outlines the targeted zones where spraying will occur.

In an effort to control Culex mosquito populations, the Mosquito Control Program is conducting both morning and evening sprays as able throughout next week. Citizens can expect to see spray trucks out in the morning between the hours of 3:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and in the evening between 7:30 p.m. to 1:00  a.m. Press releases will be issued as these events occur.

We will begin with spraying Zones 4 and 7 on Monday morning, August 19, 2013, and Zones 2, 14, and 16 will be sprayed in the evening.

Protecting Yourself from Mosquitoes

This targeted spray effort is being conducted in response to increased numbers of mosquito populations. The Sioux Falls Mosquito Control Program follows a phased response guideline created by the CDC that is used to determine when spray events and other treatments are needed.

The City will be using the product Zenivex E20 for spray treatments. Products used by the City of Sioux Falls are designed to break down in the environment quickly and are used at very low concentrations. Zenivex E20 is a product approved for use by the EPA in residential areas for adult mosquito control.

As progress is made toward completing the spraying process, updates will be placed on the City’s website. In order to view the spray map, or for additional information such as which zone you live in, visit the website at www.siouxfalls.org/mosquito. Citizens wanting to report local concerns on mosquitoes or standing water should leave this information on the automated Mosquito Reporting Hotline at 605-367-8799.
