City of Weatherford Mosquito Surveillance & Response Plan
The City of Weatherford recently implemented a Mosquito Surveillance & Response plan, a comprehensive plan aimed at reducing the risk of mosquito-borne human diseases. The main goal of the plan is to decrease the number of adult mosquitoes by eliminating breeding sites wherever possible.
The City's mosquito responses and control measures will be based on the likelihood of threat to human health from West Nile virus or other mosquito-borne diseases. Up-to-date information about the City's current risk level will be communicated on the City's website.
Targeted adulticide applications using up to and including ground based Ulta Low Volume Equipment (ULV fog or spray) will only be considered if there are conditions indicative of a Public Health Warning. If adulticiding is implemented, citizens residing in areas where applications will occur will be notified through several methods including press releases, Blackboard Message, City's cable channel (channel 27), and through the City's website. The City's communication efforts are a partnership with the public. Be proactive and get signed up today to stay informed.
