When does the town spray for mosquitoes?


"The City of Laramie runs an Integrated Mosquito Management Program. Much of our operation focuses on larval surveillance and control and treatments. BTI (an environmentally friendly bacteria) treatments began in April 2018. Adult mosquito fogging (i.e. "spraying") threshold numbers were reached in adult mosquito surveillance traps on Friday, June 1--fogging commenced the evening of Sunday, June 3. Fogging has been divided into 4 zones. If a trap's overnight numbers indicate a need to fog a specific zone, the city will publish this daily updated information on the city's website under the Mosquito and Chemical Application Hotline and on our voicemail hotline at 307-721-5025. Each zone has a physical description that is available on the website and voicemail hotline as well. Atmospheric conditions greatly determine whether our mosquito crews can fog and include: temperatures over 50 degrees Fahrenheit and wind speeds between 1 and 10 mph."

Ask the City Of Laramie is your chance to send the city that burning question that you have always wondered about such as: “Where can I get a city parking permit?” or “Why did my water usage rates go through the roof?”

Please note that the City of Laramie will answer as many questions as possible at their discretion.
