Larimer County to Spray Twice to Reduce West Nile Risk
Larimer County is spraying for mosquitoes twice in the next week, based on high levels of infected Culex mosquitoes trapped last week. The Larimer County Health Department is hoping to decrease the risk of human West Nile virus infection by spraying for mosquitoes on the eastern edge of Fort Collins and parts of Larimer County. Currently there are 6 confirmed cases of West Nile virus in Larimer County, and 2 more under investigation.
When are They Spraying?
The spraying is Wednesday, August 17 and Sunday, August 21, weather permitting. Spraying will occur by fogging trucks and will begin at 8:30 p.m. and end by midnight each night.
Where are They Spraying?
The area that will be sprayed stretches from Timberline Road to I-25 and from Prospect to Harmony.
The Town of Berthoud will also begin spraying operations this week.
