WHO: Colorado Mosquito Control (CMC) is responsible for fogging application (spraying) for mosquitos in Windsor. Colorado Mosquito Control website 970-962-2582.
WHEN: Weather permitting, the traps are set on Wednesday afternoons and retrieved on Thursday mornings throughout the season, giving a good indication of the relative number of mosquitoes in an area, as well as what species are occurring there. Weather permitting, spraying is done on Thursday evenings. Spray Schedule information: www.comosquitocontrol.com/Spray_Schedules
WHERE: Trap thresholds of 100 or more mosquitoes will trigger a truck fogging application in the area of town around the trap site. This system provides data-based decisions for mosquito spray areas.
WHAT: All products selected for use by CMC are registered by the US EPA and the State of Colorado Department of Agriculture. Many of the products used by CMC are widely utilized in many mosquito abatements programs across the country because of their efficacy and minimal environmental impacts. CMC has selected these products following IPM guidelines with the goal of protecting human populations and the natural environment while economically reducing pest and disease-vector mosquitoes to tolerable levels.
