Dublin, OH – Franklin County Public Health will be spraying for mosquitoes Wednesday, July 10, in several areas of Dublin and parts of Washington Township due to a high number of nuisance mosquitoes. Please see the included maps for reference.
Recent trap data from some of our trap zones showed a high number of mosquitoes:
- Dublin North 127 mosquitoes
- Dublin South 337 mosquitoes
- Dublin East 121 mosquitoes
According to our mosquito management contract, FCPH will spray to reduce the number of adult mosquitoes when a trap catches 50 or more mosquitoes in a particular zone.
FCPH regularly traps and tests mosquitoes throughout the City. It is part of an Integrated Mosquito Control and Management Program aimed at disease prevention.
The spray on Wednesday, July 10, is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. (weather permitting). It will take a few hours to spray the entire area. Darree Fields will be sprayed after 11 p.m. due to evening activities.
This spray event is to reduce the number of nuisance/floodwater mosquitoes. These are not the same mosquitos that carry West Nile Virus.
Spraying is typically only performed when WNV or extremely high levels of mosquitoes are found in a particular area.
