City of Florence Mosquito Control Program

Published Jul 19, 2017
The City of Florence Public Works Department is responsible for mosquito abatement inside the city limits.  Mosquito control is essential, not only to eliminate the biting nuisance, but to reduce the risk of viruses such as West Nile and Zika.  The City uses a chemical called "Aqua-Reslin" utilizing a truck mounted ULV (Ultra Low Volume) fogger, which is ideal for eliminating both adult mosquitos as well as their larvae.  Spraying occurs two to three times per week, unless weather dictates otherwise.  We cannot spray the entire city each week, but we do attempt to blanket multiple neighborhood areas each week.  It generally takes two or three weeks of spraying to reach all areas within the city limits.
