The City of Laramie Mosquito Control is planning to spray Dibrom in rural areas near the city on Wednesday, June 26, at 7 p.m., weather permitting.

That's according to a post on the City of Laramie's Facebook page. If the weather doesn't cooperate with that schedule, the spraying may happen on Thursday, June 27, or Friday, June 28.

According to the post, the spraying will target both nuisance and vector mosquitos The vector mosquitos include culex tarsalis mosquitos, which can carry West Nile virus. The post says that right now the number of vector mosquitos in the city is pretty low, but adds that more will probably migrate into the city unless something is done to control their numbers.

According to the post, the following areas are scheduled for spraying: "Southwest of the city limits along Highway 230 and the Big Laramie River drainage from the city limits southwest approximately 10 miles; West of the city limits between the Big Laramie River on the South, Interstate 80 on the north and the Laramie Regional Airport on the west; the third area is north of the city limits between Welsh lane and 45th street including the area of the city wastewater treatment plant and the city landfill."

More About West Nile Virus

According to the federal Centers For Disease Control, West Nile virus is the most common mosquito-borne disease in the United States.  While most people who contract the virus do not feel sick, about 1 in 5 who get the virus will develop a fever and other symptoms. About 1 in 150 people will get seriously ill, and the virus can be fatal in some cases.

Actual Wyoming Laws That are Completely Bonkers

Just like all states in the U.S., Wyoming has its own set of laws. If you dig deep into the Wyoming law book, you will find some real obscure laws you probably didn't even know existed.
