Adult Mosquito Control (Fogging) Schedule

Fogging is typically conducted in evenings from sunset to 2 and a half hours after sunset.

The Gem County Mosquito Abatement District is, first and foremost, a public health protection program and is designed to reduce and minimize the risk from mosquito-borne disease by managing mosquitoes. For this purpose, the district makes applications on private property to control mosquitoes. District technicians are trained to gain the best coverage. The district and its technicians are not custom applicators. It is district policy that all adult mosquito control service vehicles (foggers) must stay on an established road, lane, or driveway. Technicians are not allowed to drive through lawns, fields, and off of designated roadways. The practice of driving off of established roadways is hazardous and is not congruent with continuity of operations needs. The product applied to control adult mosquitoes spreads for significant distance naturally, is carried by the wind (with intention) for substantial distances, and is considered a wide-area insecticide application. The vehicle is not required to pass through every area of a property to gain control, as the product has an established 300 foot swath width. Requests for custom applications off of roadways, lanes, and drives will not be entertained. In an effort to minimize repeated technician exposure to aerosolized insecticides, the technicians will not open and close gates or do anything that requires the technician to leave the vehicle cab. Driveways longer than 150 feet may be utilized to gain better coverage and driveway utilization is at the discretion of the technician making the application at that time.  There are options to opt out of driveway usage.  Thank you for your consideration.
