City of Russell Begins Mosquito Spraying

Mosquito SprayingCity of Russell crews will begin mosquito spraying Thursday, May 31. The City typically does its spraying in the evenings. Spraying will continue, as needed, over the coming weeks.

City crews would also like to remind the public that if you have any standing water in your yards, dump the water to reduce the number of mosquito eggs and larva. Standing water can be in outdoor pet bowls, old tires, bird baths, trash cans, etc.

Another unseen breeding ground is rain gutters and backyard swimming pools. Be sure to keep your rain gutters unclogged and treat your pool regularly, remove debris and keep filters clean.

Most breeds of mosquitoes will go from egg to full adult within seven to 10 days, therefore it's very important to flush out standing water every week to keep mosquito population to a minimum.

If you have any questions, please contact Rich Krause at 785-483-6311. Informational pamphlets on mosquito control are also available at the City Building at 133 West 8th Street.
