Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a do not spray list?
Yes. Beekeepers, farmers, and any residents in Wellington who wish to be added to a do not spray list must submit a completed Do Not Spray form.
What is the schedule for spraying?
Spraying for adult mosquitoes is not done on a routine schedule. Schedules are made on a daily basis based upon surveillance data taken each morning from mosquito traps around Wellington. State pesticide regulations require specific surveillance be conducted prior to pesticide applications.
How is mosquito surveillance conducted?
The primary system is five (5) light traps augmented with carbon dioxide (CO2) operated at the same time each evening. Residential requests are used to indicate problems not reflected in light traps. Mosquito technicians in the field conducting larval surveillance and treatment utilize landing rate counts to provide additional data.
How often may we expect our residence to be sprayed?
During the peak of the mosquito season (June through November), no more than once per week. Wellington is divided into five (5) zones to be treated.
How do you know what area has been sprayed?
Each night's activities are recorded and reviewed the following day. A GPS recording device provides a visual track of a truck's location and an indication as to whether the spray system was on. This system provides us the ability to view the actual work of the operator to determine if any part of the treatment area was missed and to assure that he or she is performing appropriately.
Will the spray harm my children or pets?
Not likely. The pesticide is extremely safe for use around warm blooded creatures and is in fact a repellant for animals. There is, however, the possibility that inhallation of the spray could cause a reaction in individuals with chronic respiratory illnesses such as asthma or emphysema.
