Notice: Mosquito Spraying Scheduled for Tonight, Sept. 20th

Scheduled to Start at 8:30 pm Tonight

We apologize for the short notice, but we received word yesterday morning that a mosquito trap in Bexley tested positive for the mosquito species which is a carrier of the West Nile Virus. We want to be proactive in our efforts to protect our community and get the spraying completed before this weekend, which will happen tonight at 8:30 pm. 

The Franklin County Public Health Department will be honoring the same households and properties which opted out of the last spraying for tonight's spraying, too. This treatment is scheduled for the evening, after bee and other insect populations are no longer active or vulnerable, and when the mosquitoes that are West Nile Virus carriers are most active. Note that this treatment will not impact all mosquito species which are active in Bexley, so residents should continue to be vigilant about removing sources of standing water, etc. to discourage mosquito population growth.

Please Note: The chemicals used in this spraying are Permethrin and Piperonyl Butoxide. When sprayed correctly at the recommended pounds per acre, it is not toxic. The FCPHD will be spraying at .0035 lbs/acre - which is incredibly low.
