LARAMIE -- We may be in for a little relief from the invasion of blood-sucking, hungry, flying miniature monsters.

Residential area mosquito fogging will take place this weekend within Laramie city limits.

Tyler Shevling, Mosquito Control Crew Supervisor, said due to unusually high nuisance mosquito densities in all locations in the City, mosquito control fogging crews will be applying Zenivex E4 ULV in residential areas, parks, and recreation areas tonight, June 28 and Saturday night, June 29 to take advantage of warmer predicted evening temperatures.

Friday and Saturday the fogging operations will start at 9 p.m. to allow weekend events to conclude and to minimize any conflicts. Fogging trucks will operate with a continuous amber strobe light on the cab as a caution device for motorists and pedestrians.

Currently, the City of Laramie has tested six mosquito pools for West Nile Virus with one pool testing positive for the virus. Vector mosquito numbers remain low, and the City of Laramie currently rates the risk of infection at level 1 (Low Risk).

Mosquito control application schedules will be available daily on the Mosquito Control and Integrated Pest Management Hotline at 721-5056. The Hotline is updated daily at 4 p.m. and will also list any chemical application made by the City of Laramie Parks Division crews. HOTLINE information is also available on the City of Laramie Web Page. Look for the Hotline tab at the bottom-left of the home page.
